Orms is proud to have been a part of this years Filmit Festival!

Filmit is an initiative run by the Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch. The competition offers the opportunity to young aspiring South African film makers to receive mentorship from top industry professionals.

Paul Roos Gymnasium launched the second annual Filmit Festival in March 2022 to great anticipation from learners around the country. Aspiring filmmakers have since pitched their ideas for short films, documentaries, and music videos with the first round of finalists being selected in April.

20 short films, 8 music videos, 6 documentaries, and 2 “other” creative concepts were selected to move to the next round. During the next period learners will have access to free mentorship via the Filmit Festival Shop Talk Sessions. This allows for an invaluable opportunity to ask questions and engage with specialists in various photographic fields.

With a passion for education Filmit have also chosen to make these talks available to all young adults with an interest in filmmaking. The resources can be found on their YouTube channel. These videos will be released on a daily basis starting Wednesday, 15 June 2022.

All final film projects will be handed over in September, watch this space!
