AFF Youth is committed to helping teachers and students make the most of the program, and have developed information and resources to enable them to make the most of the festival. Education resources have been developed, and more will be added to, which link directly to the Australian Curriculum to explore ideas and issues within the films and support students to engage with the content of the films they are attending.

Classification Advice

The Australian public is well versed in the Australian Classification Board’s classifications schema of G, PG, M, MA.
Films with an Australian theatrical release in cinemas will have been classified by the Board according to this schema. Where films have a limited release at a film festival, the Australian Classification Boards allows film festivals to undertake this classification using their expertise to employ 3 categories: All Ages, 15+ and 18+.

Under the title of each film in the Adelaide Film Festival Youth program you will find a rating based on either the:
—Australian Classification Board rating of G, PG, M, MA
—Adelaide Film Festival assigned classification of All Ages, 15+ and 18+.
The age given in the sidebar, which is adjacent to the synopsis provides a guide to assist with selecting the film that is best suited for your students/children. This section also contains Content Advice.


Teaching Resources

Teacher resources are currently being developed for a number of the films with information and links to the Australian Curriculum and SACE. The activities within the resources are designed and developed to engage students in:

  • Learning about and using knowledge, skills, processes and technologies to explore media arts practice and make media artworks that communicate ideas and intentions.
  • Exploring, interpreting, analysing and responding to films they view at the Adelaide Film Festival Youth program.
