This December, Māoriland Film Festival Charitable Trust is running Cultural Based Digital Workshops for youth aged 14 – 23.
At this one day workshop, you’ll work with Aboriginal Australia’s Indigilab, and a Māori drone operator to learn about these new filmmaking technologies, how to use them and what cool stuff you could make from them.
You’ll also be asked to input into writing an Indigenous Code of Ethics by Youth for this technology – possibly a world first!
It’s FREE, but only the keen need apply. Only 20 places are available.
