Free regional school screenings of great Australian films


High school and primary school teachers in a regional area who would like free cinema screenings of Australian films for their students can now book online. The AFC, through its Industry and Cultural Development program, offers school students the opportunity to view and discuss contemporary and classic features, shorts and documentaries in local communities throughout regional Australia.

To book screenings, teachers can now access a quick and easy online booking system on the Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM) website: www.metromagazine.com.au/metro/

The screenings take place during school hours at local cinemas, and the films screened are programmed in consultation with the local area schools.

Secondary schools can access such brilliant films as Australian Rules (M), The Big Steal (M), Lantana (MA), Gallipoli (M), Hating Alison Ashley (PG), Newsfront (PG), The Tracker (M), and Picnic at Hanging Rock (PG).

Primary schools can draw on the rich diversity of Australian films, including Storm Boy (G), No Worries (G), Hildegarde (G), Dot and the Kangaroo (G), The Magic Pudding (G), and short films from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) such as the 2004 Academy Award® nominated animation Birthday Boy (G).

If your school is not able to access any screenings on offer, you can contact the AFC's Education Programs Coordinator, Bob Percival, to discuss organising a screening in your local cinema or a free screening at your school if there is no cinema nearby.

For more information please contact Bob Percival at robert.percival@afc.gov.au or book online at www.metromagazine.com.au/metro/
