Filmmaker Development Calendar

In order to navigate the Filmmaker Development program and take full advantage of what’s on offer, the program has been broken up into four main areas, forums, workshops and couch conversations:

Forums

Choose from a range of forums at The Big Picture or throughout the week. They are fast, fact filled forums that will grab your attention.

Workshops 

Get involved with a range of intimate and practical workshops, with topics ranging from visual effects to pop-up legal clinics, technical post workflow sessions, drone presentations and audience development. RSVP required. Please RSVP by Friday 13 May to filmfestforums@portphillip.vic.gov.au clearly stating the time, workshop name, your name and mobile number.

Couch Conversations 

Here attendees will learn about the importance of the relationships between composer and director, colourist and DOP, director and DOP and working as a team to create strong content. 

Industry Stallholders

Stop for a chat with our industry specialists and find out how their know-how can help you and your current project or next film idea become a reality.
