Film by Invitation 2020

Congratulations to all the schools whose films screened at Film by Invitation for Education Week 2020 which showcased films from all the 2019 festivals. Our patron, Bryan Brown had a hard time selecting his favourite movie but he managed to narrowed it down to Campsie Public School’s Homework. Special commendations were also given to Centennial Park School (Spawn), Hastings Public School (Tyler's Tale) and Ellison Public School (The Truth About Global Warming).

Over 22000 viewers voted for their favourite films with the most popular vote going to Broken Hill North Public School’s Just Another Ordinary Day. Watch the online festival here

Support for Schools, Teachers and Students

Film by… continues to support school all over NSW with registered and non-registered TPL for teachers and workshops for students. All our programs have cross curriculum applications and aim to support current programs and learning without adding workload. We can visit your school and work with teachers and students on many different aspects of film making.

We also provide our TPL via zoom and this can also be tailored to specific requirements.
