Screen It is a national moving image competition that inspires young people of school age to create a game, live action film or animation. It is presented by ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image), and features categories for primary, middle, and senior school students.
Screen It challenges young people to make discoveries about their world as they explore and communicate ideas around a key theme. ACMI is proud to present Screen It as an opportunity for school age people to become thoughtful and purposeful creators of screen-based content.
The 2017 theme for Screen It is Time.
When considering this theme students can delve into a variety of topics across a range of disciplines to inform their projects. They could consider how mass and gravity affect the passing of time, investigate black holes or light years, discover how early film relied on timing to work effectively, explore moments in history that have brought about change, and be inspired by artists, writers and filmmakers – it’s up to them how they interpret the theme and go about shaping their findings and ideas into a creative production.
We aim to support young people to build high levels of screen and digital literacy skills around significant content, and encourage diverse and innovative ways to interpret, explore and communicate ideas surrounding the topic.
