IFF in detail:
We are currently looking for a team of motivated students from 11-19 years old to make this years festival a hit. If you’re interested in film-making, acting, improving your English and meeting a lot of new people from around the city then the IFF is the spot for you.
The InterACT Film Festival is a series of 8 workshops in the summer holiday. Over the 8 meetings we’ll work in small groups (circa 12 people) to create, write, rehearse and eventually film our own short movies in English.
Who is it?
We are an international team of professional actors, filmmakers, and other artists from the USA, New Zealand and Germany. The groups themselves will be made up of students between 12 – 19 years who are interested in improving their English, meeting new people and learning about film.
When is it?
We are accepting applications now. Our first meeting date will be in August
During this meeting you’ll get to know your group, people from the other groups and your instructors.

What kind of films?
The type of story you tell and the way you tell it will be up to your group. Horror, western, action, adventure, art, romance or musical, we’ll do our best to help you make the best films we can with the resources we have.
This year the theme for the IFF is Futures 2050. Over the course of the workshops we’ll work with you to explore the idea of what the future might look like, what will societies problems be and how might we deal with them.
How much does is cost?
The IFF project is FREE! We’ve got a really great sponsor, they’re called Rational Games Inc. and they believe in the IFF so much they are willing to pay for you to take part.
So to take part in the IFF will not cost you any money…
But, it will require your commitment, your time and your hard work. There are only 24 spaces for students so we need to make sure we choose people that are going to really put the effort into making an awesome movie.
This program will be held in English.
You don’t have to speak perfect English to take part but you should feel comfortable speaking, listening to and writing in the language.
Please submit your applications in English to help us gauge your level.
