Be Part of the Team who Organise GFF

Green Foot Flicks is organised by a group of young people called the Knox Youth Events Crew.

The Events Crew is a group of young people 10-25, who have a connection to the City of Knox, who have come together to help support and guide Knox City Council's Youth Services in the provision of their participation in three (3) major festivals; Green Foot Flicks, Knox Festival and Stringybark. Knox City Council Youth Services will achieve this by supporting the Events Crew to engage young people more effectively in the planning, development and coordination of Youth Services involvement in the above festivals.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from young people aged between 12 and 25 years of age who live, work, study or hang out in the City of Knox to help us plan the Green Foot Flicks Film Festival, including other activities at the Knox Festival and Knox Stringybark Festival. We will also assist the selected young people to develop skills in event management, risk management, sponsorship, promotion and marketing.

Why Is It Called Green Foot Flicks?

The name 'Green Foot Flicks' came about during the first festival in 2008 when the promotional ad featured a giant green monster, who left his green foot-print which become our logo, and so it became the Green Foot Flicks!
