Over the Spring holiday season, Camp Australia teamed up with StarTime to bring The Rocketeers Film Festival to children across Australia. Over 2,000 children joined us for filmmaking workshops, both online and in-person, creating over 570 amazing films, giving children the opportunity to tell their stories on the silver screen.
An online premiere showcased the very talented winners - and included 3 special guests, 13 state winning films and 2 special mentions. We saw children's bravery, confidence and creativity shine in each and every film and it was wonderful.

We applaud each child who got involved and thank our partners for helping us to make this an extraordinary and memorable experience for children, especially during lockdown: StarTime Studios, Children's International Film Festival Australia, Australian Children's Television Foundation and Australian Film Critics Association.
