Stories From The Hunter Region: Student Short-Documentary Series
A series of short documentaries produced by 2nd Year University of Newcastle students.
This series of short documentaries produced by 2nd Year University of Newcastle students reflects the diversity of the Hunter Valley—it’s communities, people, culture and environment. We encounter courageous individuals overcoming health challenges, artists working in the community from street art to fine art and school photography, the rehabilitation and protection of the Hunter Region’s unique environments, the exuberance of youth cultures engaged in music to mountain bike riding, and the uncovering of poverty, prejudice and social justice.
These works highlight the sensitivity, skill, intelligence and compassion of a group of students that we can now call documentary filmmakers.
This performance makes up part of FESTIVAL X being proudly presented by the School Of Creative Industries 13-17 November, across the University’s vibrant city campus and beyond. Now in its second year, Festival X is a culmination of student’s work in the areas of design, animation, communication, theatre, music and film. Held over five days and featuring more than twenty unique events, the students will be making their mark in performances, exhibitions and screenings, celebrating their achievements and showcasing years of dedication to their craft.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
