Nextwave Online service launches

Nextwave Online youth film education service launches nationally

As technology becomes ever more accessible, filmmaking has changed from a fringe arts skill into an everyday communications skill – YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, documenting school projects, making video presentations. The technology is there in our pockets. 

Filmmaking is here as a new skill of the 21st century – but how do we teach it?

Since 2014, our Nextwave team have taught over 5000 young regional students the fundamentals of filmmaking at hundreds of in-school workshops – and now, we’re taking it Australia-wide for the first time via a dedicated Learning Management System portal called NEXTWAVE ONLINE.

Nextwave short film competition

Students can put their new skills into practice by entering the Nextwave youth short film competition, regional Australia’s largest youth film competition, with tens of thousands of dollars up for grabs each year.

Youth Week Film Festival Screenings

The best and brightest films from the competition are screened across Australia for Youth Week. Regional Councils can purchase Youth Week screening kits to host Nextwave in your community in April 2021.
