Today we had the 9th annual Manaiakalani Film Festival. It ran from 9am-9pm at Silva Park Hoyts, across three theatres including the massive Extreme theatre. As MDTA's our job was to organise each school coming through making sure they made it to the right theatre at the right time. The best part of this job was the fact we got to whichever screening we were helping out with, basically we spent the day running around like crazy then taking a breather to watch some epic movies.
Another way this festival can be used is to advocate for a cause. These are the videos I found most powerful and completely captured the audience. A couple of the stand out films can be viewed below:
One from Stonefields School about the importance of pronouncing names and words correctly can be seen here:
My personal favourite from Sommerville Special School about the respect for parking for people with a disability.
You can check out all the videos here, feel free to leave comments on any of the videos, leaners and teachers have put so much effort in so let them know how epic their efforts are! I'm definitely inspired for 2017!
