  • This festival is one of the best festivals for high school students in Australia. Our students and their parents had a great time at the event this year and they loved seeing their work up on the big cinema screen. Great communication from the festival organisers. We're looking forward to next year already!

    Our students were not able to attend the festival in person, but we had excellent communication with the staff of the festival. They took good care of us and made our work feel appreciated. We are honored to have been a part of the festival!
