We're back for another year with a new slate of talent for the second Emerging Film-makers' Conference. Ask your burning questions, make new connections and settle in for a night of quality films delivered with sides of live music, art and good food!
SESSION 1: HINDSIGHT IS 20/20
Hear from Aussie film-maker teams making big waves in the film industry as they tell us just how they did it, including Thomas Wilson White (The Greenhouse, 2017), Alice Foulcher (That’s Not Me, 2017), Erin Good and Taylor Litton-Strain (Jade of Death, 2017), Kacie Anning (Fragments of Friday, 2015), Hannah Reilly (Growing Up Gracefully, 2017), and moderated by Claudia Pickering (Frisky, 2016). With a range of experience, budgets and film formats, this session is the no-BS guide full of practical steps and advice for the emerging film-maker.
SESSION 2: THE WIZARDS OF AUS
Meet the real people who work to get your films in the best shape to be financed and learn how to make them your allies including Polly Staniford (Producer - Aquarius Films), Rosie Lourde(Investment Manager of Online Production, Screen Australia), Ron Brown (CEO - Ozflix), Alison Black (The Mischief Sisters) and Enzo Tedeschi (Producer). The more questions you ask, the more likely you are to leave with the answers you need to take the next step to financing your film.
