ACMI Hothouse

For the second time I'm coordinating the Hothouse program for talented Year 10-12 students at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. This 4 year state-funded program offers 10 talented students the chance to collaborate with their peers in a fast paced production studio at ACMI, with mentoring from industry professionals. Each year there is a different focus in screen culture.

The 2013 program has just opened for entries and the focus is narrative film-making.

I caught up with our 2012 Hothouse students again recently to look back on the program (you can check that out here on the ACMI blog) and they confirmed what a fantastic experience it was for them. You can also see their interviews during the Hothouse workshop in the video below (the 2012 focus was game making).

So if you know any aspiring student film-makers, urge them to apply! They can download the application kit here.
