This FREE event is open to all local screen practitioners. The event gives attendees the opportunity to make new connections and meet industry professionals. Refreshments will be served and drinks available for purchase.

This initiative is part of Screen Queensland’s Far North Queensland Screen Production Strategic Plan. Delivered by Screenworks.

Pre-Event Workshop

Screen Queensland and Screenworks will present a half-day professional development workshop for twenty selected participants, based in Far North Queensland.

Led by industry professionals, the workshop will provide guidance and mentorship to help emerging to early-career practitioners kickstart their careers, learn how to network successfully and prepare to pitch at screen conferences.

This workshop will arm practitioners with skills to:

  • Clarify their professional direction and plan to get there
  • Stay well connected to the industry in person at conferences and meetings across the nation, or even online, from Far North Queensland
  • Focus on their personal development; practitioners will need to know who they are, what they’re good at and how to communicate that to the people who matter to reach your goal.
