University of Tasmania Law Theatre Thursday 22nd August 5.30 - 7.30

These films can be used in the classroom (grades 7+) to engage students in issues such as discrimination, refugees, inequality and responsible citizenship.

The short film competition, run by Justice Action Network, required students to make films less than 3 minutes in length on the theme of anti-discrimination or 'Everybody's Welcome Here'.

The 'Make Some Noise' short film documentaries "show about people with abnormally large hearts and big-time guts. About people tired of hearing how crappy the world is, and who are actually doing something to change it. People who know how beautiful this world is and who are fighting to make sure it stays that way."
