WOMEN IN SCREEN WORKSHOP
The Australian International Screen Forum's first Women in Screen Workshop, an industry-focused lab for emerging female filmmakers who are based in New York, is being held over a six-week period from October 16 to November 20, 2019. The lab is seeking to create a space for female filmmakers to discuss industry hurdles and challenges that they face and how resourceful solutions can be put forward to create opportunity and change for their careers. The lab provides seminars on access to funding in the United States, audience strategies, negotiating pay and work placements, networking in the United States, pitching projects and mentorships, all led by women.
