  • Hothouse

    ACMI Hothouse develops the talents of promising Victorian students in Years 10 to 12 through hands-on industry experience and career inspiration.

    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.

    To coincide with ACMI's world premiere DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition, Hothouse 2014 focuses on animation. The program takes place over one action-packed week in the July school holidays. And best of all, it's free!

    Hothouse 2014 applications are now closed.
