The Global schools film competition 2016 is organised by the Department of Education and Training (DET) for students from state schools and After Hours Ethnic Schools (AHES).
The film competition:
- makes language study relevant and exciting for students.
- provides an opportunity for students to use their language to communicate for a purpose.
- showcases students’ teamwork and media abilities.
The competition has two categories for primary and secondary students.
- Primary students produce a digital presentation entitled ‘Hanging out with friends’. This could be set in any context where students interact with friends – real, virtual or entirely imaginary.
- Secondary students produce a digital presentation entitled ‘Talking to you about…’ This could be set in any context with a clearly-focused topic which must be added to the title e.g. Talking to you about happiness.
- Students work in teams of no more than 5 to develop a multimedia product on the topic.
- The student product must use the language taught at your AHES (NOT English).
- The product is to be no longer than 2 minutes viewing time.
- Teachers may supervise but should have no substantial input to the content.
- Entrants must have permission to use copyright material such as images and music.
