One of the most effective ways to educate youth and parents on cybersafety issues is via visual media. ACMA’s Cybersmart program has recently released a trailer for their newest short film, Tagged.
When a group of high-school friends post a rumour about a rival, it sparks a chain reaction that leaves no one untouched. Cyberbullying, sexting, filmed fights and police action follow – will these friends be Tagged forever?
A short film developed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s Cybersmart program, Tagged is a drama for Australian teenagers that explores; cyberbullying, sexting, digital reputation and personal responsibility. These themes are crucial to maintaining positive online behaviour and experiences while growing into adulthood. Featuring a mainly young cast, Tagged is aimed at an audience 14 years old and over.
The film is due for release in September. You can watch the trailer here or click on Tagged: Trailer in the VodPod video collection in our sidebar.
