Panel: Top Screen and VCE Media

This session offers insight into the selection of student work for Top Screen as part of the VCE Season of Excellence. Managed by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority, the Season is a five-month arts festival celebrating outstanding senior secondary student work from Victorian schools.

The State Reviewer and the Curriculum Manager for Media and the Top Screen 2016 Coordinator will form a panel with student filmmakers selected for Top Screen who produced exemplary work for VCE Media. The panel will discuss processes and production planning as well as application requirements and selection criteria for Top Screen. The filmmakers will also discuss how they tackled the immense task of producing a film of Top Screen calibre while juggling the requirements of the rest of their VCE studies. This session includes a screening of some of the films selected for Top Screen.
