Sign up now for AFTRS Film Club, five days of engaging, hands-on workshops for 9-12 year olds.

Each day holds new challenges and teaches new skills for the emerging filmmaker!


Students will get some experience with creating a stop-motion animation, creating music and a soundtrack, writing their own short scripts, performing on camera, and filming some short scenes and sketches. At the end of the week we'll screen some of the student's work - but the aim of this week is to give them exposure to a range of skills and equipment - and to have some fun being creative.
Some of the skills you will learn in film club include:
  • screenwriting,
  • storyboarding,
  • rehearsing and performing,
  • working as part of a film crew
  • and editing your scenes in iMovie.

Hurry, AFTRS Film Club will sell out fast!


“My son talked about it every evening - he enjoyed it a LOT! We like the fact that he was doing something constructive and creative during the school holidays.”

“We got to make lots of new friends, learn heaps of new interesting things and our teachers were really amazing!”

“My son begged to do it again! He had done it six months earlier and loved it. 10 out of 10!”

“The boys would talk the whole way home about their day and how much they enjoyed it. They also made many lovely friends. I think they have gained so much over the last week.”

“This is the third time my son has attended an AFTRS Open School Holiday course and each time he has an absolute ball, makes new friends and comes away from it more eager to pursue film making when he grows up.”
