Student Film Fest by alendar


More Info
									Student Film Fest
The call is out for students to develop short films that capture how technology is transforming teaching and
learning in our state schools, as part of the inaugural Smart Classrooms Film Fest.

There are two categories: primary and secondary school-aged students.

The winner of each will receive:

•   a top-of-the-range digital camera, digital video camera and iPod Touch for their school
•   statewide recognition for their creativity.

The winning films will be premiered at the Smart Classrooms Teacher Awards gala presentation, to be held
at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Monday, 16 August 2010. More than 300 teachers
and the Minister for Education and Training will be in attendance. The films will also be featured on the
department’s website.

What you need to do

Initially, supply us with a storyboard and a short written summary that identifies what your film will showcase.
A storyboard looks like a comic strip and shows the key parts of the scene in sequence – allowing the
filmmaker to see their words.

The deadline is 1 April 2010 (see below).

The department will shortlist the best ideas. Finalists will be invited to create their films.

Please note: All students and staff must sign the necessary Queensland Government consent schedule
prior to filming any promotional material.
