It’s less than one week to our Festival for 2012, but we’re already looking beyond with the interests of Australian schools in particular.
Campfire promotes short films for use in classrooms around the world. Based in Melbourne, Australia, we are also vitally interested in supporting teachers in our home country. The new Australian Curriculum, following the directions of the Melbourne Declaration, promotes 3 significant themes for Australian schools over the coming years:
Australia in the Asian region
Australian Aboriginal perspectives
The Campfire Awards in 2012 already include “Best Environmental Short”, and today we’re adding two additional categories for “Asian Region” and “Aboriginal Perspectives”.
All films submitted to the Campfire Film Festival after 14 May will now go into the running for an award in 2013 for one of the following categories:
Campfire is pleased to continue actively supporting teachers using short films for engaging students in higher order thinking. We accept quality films from filmmakers young and old, anywhere in the world.
