Rolling out the red carpet for young Pacific filmmakers

Twins Levi and Keilani from Ormiston Junior College won prizes for Best Screenplay (Levi) and Best Film (Keilani).

Young Pacific filmmakers have been honoured at red carpet events to celebrate the first Pasifika Youth Short Film competition. 

Telling stories is intrinsic to Pacific life. It’s the way messages and expectations are passed down through generations, and the way that values are shared.

The Pacific Youth Short Film competition was created as a vehicle for young Pacific people to explore their identity and the medium of film – and the results are spectacular.

Read how the competition is a platform for Pacific learners to express the challenges they face as well as their hopes and aspirations.
