Filmmaking Course and Film Festival

Each year we hold a filmmaking course and then host a Film Festival highlighting the talents of deaf or hard of hearing teenagers.

We give Australian deaf or hard of hearing secondary school students the opportunity to script, shoot and edit a film for entry into a nationwide competition.

Whether you are a pro filmmaker or one who is just keen to get started, you are welcome to enter the competition!

You can join our filmmaking and editing courses to learn more about:

  • script writing,
  • shooting and
  • editing films.

All films are shot on mobile phones or tablets so this is a workshop that is accessible to all budding filmmakers.

To complete the filmmaking workshop participants will need to have access to a Mobile Phone or iPad for filming, and a computer for editing.
