Join us as we launch our 7th Season with 4 FREE online smartphone filmmaking workshops, our 3rd panel THIS Sunday.

Learn from some of the world’s best in their respective fields, ask your burning questions and be inspired to create your own smartphone film for SF3 2021.

Week 3 – Sunday 23rd May 5pm AEST/8am GMT/12am PST – ‘SF3 Kids Masterclass & Panel’.

We are bringing you 6 of the best in the film, TV and film festival worlds and even though this is the SF3 Kids and Teens Class, we would love to see everyone there. We will be focusing on the craft of screenwriting and what exactly makes a good story, acting tips and techniques, how to get your film into festivals and everything you need to know to begin your screen career.

Panellists are:

Holly Lyons – Screenwriter whose credits include ‘Home & Away’ and ‘Neighbours’, she is the creator of ABC Me’s ‘Rocky & Me’ and runs her screenwriting assessment business, Screenwriting Script Tease. Holly is also a judge for SF3 Kids.

Ilai Swindells – Actor & Presenter whose credits include ‘SLiDE’, ‘Redfern Now’, ‘Open Slather’, ‘Spongo Fuzz & Jalapena’ and ‘100% Wolf’.

Emily Prior – Actor, Model & Disability Activist whose credits include two SF3 Kids Finalist films with an SF3 Kids Best Actress Win, ‘Rocky & Me’ and ‘The Wonder Gang’ for ABC Me. After failing to see disability being represented in Film, Media and Advertising, Emily decided to forge her own path as a filmmaker and actor and she is our very first SF3 Kids Ambassador.

Callum Pritchard – Filmmaker whose credits include 3 SF3 Kids Films, 2 which won SF3 Kids Best Film and 1 which also made the SF3 Gala Finals at the Sydney Opera House. Callum is now studying film at Swinburne University, Melbourne.

Angela Blake & Alison Crew – Co-Founders of SF3.
