FilmLife Project from last year. It's all about getting young filmmakers involved in capturing stories about organ donation and transplantation on film.
Last year, the workshop was only held in Sydney, but this year, they're expanding to include Melbourne too. So, if you know any young filmmakers between the ages of 16 and 28 who might be interested in a free weekend of filmmaking workshops, get them to sign up .
It's a great opportunity to learn from industry experts!

..... and guess what?
I'm totally chuffed to have been asked to be one of the judges for the blogging competition, along with Professional Writer Peta Murray.
Peta and myself both have little Q&A's where you can read more about what we'll be looking for in the judging.
If you're not a filmaker, or a blogger, then there's still a way you can get involved.
Creativity Can... is all about getting involved to make a change. Just take a snap and email it in - all the details are here.
If you've made it through all of that info - congratulations! Any questions, please ask away!
