To complement the Next Gen screening program, the Australian Teachers of Media has produced ATOM study guides to accompany the films programmed for school groups. The guides feature activities for students before and after the actual screening and provide film content analysis for teachers and students. Depending on the content of the film, the activities will encourage discussions around different cultures and languages plus historical, social, philosophical and political issues.

These study guides are available free of charge, and can be downloaded from the ATOM website. The following guides are available for Next Gen 2014:



Aunt Hilda!

Clara and the Secret of the Bears

Patema Inverted

School of Babel

The Good Life

The Nightingale

We Are Mari Pepa
