welcome kidzflicks

celebrating children and young people's stories

The Bardic Studio is a non-profit organisation formed by a group of film, theatre and education professionals. We support children and young people as they share their own stories with the community. The performances, broadcasts and screenings of our student's films and plays celebrate the perspectives of their generation.

Artists and teachers work together to mentor children and young people by designing effective workshops that are active, empowering and build storytelling skills. Our students share their work with audiences through public performances, film screenings and presentations. We also work with teachers in and out of schools to support their work with students.

We are the proud hosts, in partnership with Waverley Library, of the annual Sydney Festival of Films by Children and Young People, KidzFlicks.

The Festival

Bardic Studio, in partnership with Waverley Library and Council, are the proud host of KidzFlicks, the Sydney International Festival of Films by Children. The inaugural festival was held at Event Cinemas, Bondi Junction on 28th January 2012 with the screening of 138 child produced films.

The festival screenings enable children to experience validation of their perspectives and concerns. This empowers children as participants in the community and motivates them to continue making films.

KidzFlicks supports all child filmmakers equally. The festival is free to enter and free to attend. Every appropriate entry is screened.


KidzFlicks 2013 will be a 6 day event with screenings from Monday to Friday and a red-carpet function for the finalists on the Saturday.
