    Tall poppies grow here.

    Hothouse is a week-long intensive program for Victorian students in Years 10 to 12, aimed at nurturing creativity and moving image skills.

    Ten students are hand-picked each year and dropped into a fast-paced production studio, to gain hands-on production experience, contacts in the industry and plenty of career inspiration.

    The program takes place over one action-packed week in the July school holidays. And best of all, it's free!

    Hothouse 2015 focuses on documentary and will open for applications soon. To receive updates join our mailing list by sending your name and contact email to
