Youth Film Workshops

Far South Film is giving young filmmakers the chance to learn valuable hands-on skills from screen industry professionals at their upcoming Film School workshops. These weekend workshops carry on the tradition of the Footprint Theatre Film Schools held in previous years.

A 2-day workshop for newcomers aged 10 to 16 will be held over two Saturdays on 14 and 21 November at Mumbulla School in Bega. On day one participants will act, direct, operate a camera and learn some pro tricks for framing shots, lighting subjects and recording great sound. On day two students will learn editing techniques.

A 2-day workshop for more experienced filmmakers aged 12 to 18 will be held over two Sundays on 15 and 22 November at the Mumbulla School, Bega. The workshop will take participants film making skills to a new level with a more in-depth look at how to breakdown a script, create a shotlist, schedule and manage a film shoot. Working as a team in front of or behind the camera, students will have access to all footage shot on day one and be able to edit their own rough cut version ready for feedback before fine tuning their edit on day two.

Moruya workshop will be Sunday 22 Nov at Mechanics Institute Hall in Moruya for ages 10 to 18. Filmmaking 101.

Each workshop costs between $20 and $40 to attend.

This project is supported by Arts NSW's Country Arts Support Program, a devolved funding program administered by the Regional Arts NSW and South East Arts on behalf of the NSW Government. The Regional Arts Fund is an Australian Government initiative that supports sustainable and cultural development in regional, remote and very remote Australia.

Workshops are limited to 12 participants and bookings are essential via Far South Film's website:
