Michael O’Brien, Member for Malvern, is encouraging young local filmmakers in Years 10 to 12 to apply to participate in a one-week, intensive screen culture training course as part of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image’s (ACMI) Hothouse program.
Students will receive mentoring and guidance from film industry professionals and ACMI staff and learn about pathways into tertiary film study and filmmaking careers.
“Successful participants will gain invaluable production experience, develop key skills in narrative filmmaking, career inspiration and the opportunity to build contacts within the industry,” Mr O’Brien said.
The ACMI Hothouse program is a Coalition Government election promise to establish and deliver school holiday training courses for Victoria's future screen practitioners.
Applications for ACMI’s Hothouse course are now open and close on Monday 25 February.
