Calling all school students! Short filmmaking programme, OnScreen is back for 2024!

OnScreen is a digital opportunity for high school students that challenges you to create an original short film, documentary or music video of up to 7 minutes.

Filmmakers creating a music video can use our library of past Smokefreerockquest songs, or any original, unsigned music.

OnScreen is free to enter and open to all school students across Aotearoa.

There is also an Intermediate section of OnScreen for student filmmakers Years 7&8: submit any original short film of up to 5 mins and be in to win $500!

Final registration close August 20 and all films are due by 26 September 2024.


Narrative Short Film
In this section you can make any kind of short film you like - funny, serious, dramatic, animated, scary or a combo of all of the above!

You can tackle a serious topic, something close to your heart, something you are wanting to learn about or try your hand at a funny mockumentary!

Music Video
Think music videos, a musical or narrative film all about music. All music must be original or royalty-free - this is a great opportunity to link up with a friend’s band to create an epic music video.
