2018 Festival Trailer

We fill a vital gap by providing a way for children to share their stories with a broader audience through our support of the production, distribution, and exhibition of child produced films from Australia and around the world.

 

All child filmmakers are welcome to ask for support and to submit their films for screening. We take great pride in the increased media literacy those experiences give.

Join us in celebrating the unique perspectives of children aged 3 to 12 years in 2020. You can participate by:

  • encouraging a child to make and submit a film

  • directing children, teachers and community leaders to our website and the resources for young filmmakers that we've placed there

  • supporting our screenings 

  • donating time, equipment, expertise, resources or funds
