Learn to write, shoot and edit
REC Ya Shorts Youth Film Festival, presented by Screenwave and Headspace, is offering a free film-making workshop at 10am today at Southern Cross University's O Block Theatre.
While the film festival competition is open to young people aged 12 to 25, the free film-making workshop is open to everyone interested in developing film-making and visual storytelling skills.
The workshop provides introductory film-making skills and helps first time and amateur film-makers develop their ideas and will feature a screening of last year's festival winners' films.
The introductory film-making workshop will be followed by another free workshop by ABC Open about documentary film-making, also open to everyone and free to attend.
"As with all Screenwave projects, the aim of these workshops is to bring people together through film-making and screen culture," said David Horsley, Screenwave Festivals director.
"Attendees will learn how to write, shoot, and edit their own short films, and leave with a firm concept developed. There are limited spaces available, so it's a case of first in, best dressed."
Reservations for the free workshop can be made through the Eventbrite link on the Screen Wave Facebook page.
