YOOF Tube has been supported again this year by both the Eurobodalla and Bega Valley Shire Councils, each offering prizes in various categories for youth keen to make a film in their shire.

These workshops offer youth a real chance to build foundation skills in screen acting, film and digital media with professional guidance.

South East Arts expects YOOF Tube will play a pivotal role in the development of future screen industry professionals in the region that is building its reputation as a major filmmaking area. A screen strategy for the region was launched in July.
