Bring filmmaking skills to your students.
The Coffs Coast’s Screenwave International Film Festival has launched a new national service for teachers to easily bring film education into the classroom – no previous experience required.
The aim of Nextwave Online is to also develop filmmaking skills in you as a teacher, and to provide your students new methods to showcase their excellence through film, such as in school work, national short film competitions, potential internship opportunities, careers in film and the creative industries, and so much more.
Purchase your school subscription to teach a complete introductory filmmaking course to you and your students, either in the classroom, or accessed remotely. Teachers are supported with companion guides for every episode, plus activity sheets and additional resources, along with direct support from the Nextwave team.
Subscriptions run calendar year.
