On Monday, October 15 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm, Sydney’s Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) Certificate in Screen Culture will present Ten Festival Directors in One Room as part of their ongoing Red Carpet event series.
Billed as “a chance to learn the secrets of our screen culture” and “a series of fast-moving presentations from ten or more film festival directors on the ideas that inspire them and the events they create,” the get-together will feature a keynote address by Sydney Film Festival Artistic Director Nashen Moodley on why festivals matter.
Debating the purpose and future of the film festival will be representatives from the Antenna Documentary Film Festival, The Festivalists, The French Film Festival and Queer Screen. Making a spotlight appearance will be Byron Bay Film Festival director J’aimee Skippon-Volke, who will deliver a special presentation on international networks for festival directors.
Drinks and mingling will follow the program.
The event will be held in the AFTRS Theatre 1, The Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org. To see the AFTRS Screen Culture Graduate Certificate on offer for 2013, visit aftrs.edu.au/awardcourses.
