Australia’s biggest student film competition, Screen It, is a free annual competition open to all Australian primary and secondary school students. This year, there were 587 entries created by 2,521 primary and secondary school students, and we spoke to some of the winners to find out what they got out of the experience.
The Screen It competition is a focused, curriculum-based learning program, designed to encourage imagination and inventiveness in students, with the excitement of winning prizes and a splendid awards gala.
The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) accepts entries of live action films, animations or videogames via schools or independently, and from individuals or teams. Entries are judged in three age groups: Junior (Foundation to Year 4), Middle (Years 5 to 8) and Senior (Years 9 to 12) age groups.
Screen It is designed to provide rich cross-disciplinary curriculum outcomes for entrants, and teachers are supported through a series of education resources developed by ACMI’s experienced educators.
