Auburn International Film and Video Festival for Children and Young
Adults was established in 1998 as a community cultural development
initiative. Since then, the festival and its philosophy have been
acknowledged internationally by children, youth and adults who are
interested in moving images as a medium for expressing social, cultural,
political, racial and economical concerns about the environments in
which they live. In the year 2011 the festival received more than 700
films from 57 countries and showcased nearly 100 works by youth, adults
and children as little as 6 years old.

As the festival rapidly grows, so do other activities alongside the
festival’s main program such as children video and animation workshops,
media literacy forums, international Curatorial and Exchange
programs.  Promotion and distribution of those works, which do not have
prior distribution support is the most significant component of the

15th Auburn International Film Festival for Children and Young Adults
will be held at Reading Cinemas in Auburn and The Armory Theatre during
September 17-21, 2012.  The festival will be hosted by various venues
around the city of Sydney and Regional NSW through its ‘Traveling Film
Festival’ program in 2012.

The festival accepts short and feature lengths films made by
children, young adults and adults whose works are for or about children
and youth.  The primary audience are students from primary and high
schools in the Western Sydney region and beyond.  Through ‘Exchange and
Curatorial’, ‘Special Screening’ and ‘Travelling Film’ Festival’, the festival content will reach the general public and communities locally and globally.

About Cinewest

inewest (Multimedia) was established as an association by Auburn Community Development Network in 1999. This was a direct response to the need for Screen Culture and Audience Development activities in the Auburn LGA and Western Sydney region. This initiative was promptly supported by the Ministry for the Arts as part of ACDN Multicultural Arts Officer program until it became a legal entity and independent from the mother organization. In February 2003, Cinewest became a Company Limited by Guarantee and formed its own constitution and board of directors was appointed.
In 2003, CCDNSW and Cinewest were the only two organizations in the Western Sydney region to take part of a survey undertaken by a Melbourne based organization to draft SOPA's (Sydney Olympic Park Authority) Arts and Cultural policy. Cinewest managed to obtain a subsidized premise at Sydney Olympic Park to administrate its projects and aid with the implementation.
From 2003 2007, Cinewest received administration and project funding from Screen NSW.  During 1999 and 2006, Cinewest initiated and managed various CCD (Community Cultural Development), Screen Culture and Audience Development projects locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Cinewest has become a landmark and a platform in Australia for children and youth to access media industry, literacy and digital filmmaking as well as learning about production, presentation, promotion, and distribution.
