Let the film-making roll

COFFS Coast school-aged Spielbergs are being encouraged to get their cameras rolling for a national film-making competition these school holidays.

Screen It is the Australian Centre for the Moving Image's national film-making competition, and this year's theme is Cybersmart: constructing online/personal identity.

Screen It spokesperson, Claire Butler, said entrants in this year's contest need to think about how they use the internet.

“It is a good idea to explore a topic, such as what it means to be a cyber citizen, the types of relationships that occur online and the way they experience community online,” Ms Butler said.

“As well as investigating the topic, you will learn some great techniques to make films, games and animations, and have a lot of fun along the way.”

Winners receive a trophy and a DVD price pack, but the school with the most finalist entries also wins a prize.

The winners' work will also be added to the library of the new ACMI resource centre opening this year, where they can be seen by all ACMI visitors.
