Greek Film Festival: Teacher Filmmaker Bootcamp
The Greek Film Festival has for the past three years ran a Student Film Festival, in which students from Primary, Secondary and University can submit short films. The films are generally produced by students in groups, under the guidance of their teachers.
This year, to support teachers with the production of these films, the Greek Community of Melbourne (which operates the Greek Film Festival) offered filmmaking workshops to these teachers, which also contributed towards their professional development.
The Open Channel Filmmaking Bootcamp took place onsite at the Greek Community of Melbourne’s community centre in Lonsdale Street. The introductory course provided teachers with the basic skills to produce a solid short film, with improved production values, which were then screened, as part of the competition, at the Greek Film Festival.
The teachers were enthusiastic – and some of them extremely competitive – the competition is a tight! For further information about the Festival visit: www.greekfilmfestival.com.au
