School Film Festival

Each year students all over Australia produce short films which are screened in the German School Film Festival finals in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Filmmakers, get ready! The time has come.

This year, the German School Film Festival will take you on a journey into the future: "GERMANY IN THE YEAR 3017".

Imagine life in the Year 3017. What will the world, what will Germany look like? Will we still live in houses; will people dress the same and will our lives be entirely controlled by technology? Tell us your story and remember there are no limits to creativity.


Register now! Further information, terms and conditions and online registration forms are available here.


The more than 28 entries, that were sent from ACT, NSW and QLD last year, demonstrate how creativity and the study of German can be combined. The films were presented on 19 October 2017 in Chauvel Cinema in Sydney.


The results from WA and SA were screened in Adelaide on 6th September 2017 and viewed by students, teachers, principals and parents. Watch the winner films on the next page.


The finals for the entries from TAS and VIC were held at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne on 26th October 2017. Here are the winners...
