The Diegesis screenings include a season exploring animation in all its forms through the work of some of Australia’s most innovative animators. It also includes a showcase of videos and interactive media works by primary and secondary school students from around the country. The Diegesis Screen Awards will see a prize of $5,000 in computer equipment go to the winning school. Additionally, a trophy will go to the winner of the Diegesis Photography Award, selected from approximately 140 student works exhibited at ACMI.
A series of forums will give students invaluable insight into arts and media-based careers. Game Loading will feature professionals from the rapidly expanding gaming industry, while in A Life in Pictures professional photographers host a series of sessions providing a comprehensive picture of photojournalism. In a masterclass held in the ACMI Digital Studio, photographer Brett McLennan will instruct students in the translation of traditional photographic practices into the digital domain.
With thousands of student and teacher participants since 1994, Diegesis has become a vital part of Australia’s screen educational landscape. RT
