G'day 2021 Industry Delegate!

We are so excited to host you for this year’s Australian International Screen Forum New York.

 

As with many things, we have had to adjust our format and platforms for 2021 and wanted to provide some step-by-step instructions to enable you to access our programming over the next week.  

 

Essentially, we are using two different platforms to host both the screenings and the conference.

 

This year’s film screenings will be hosted on the virtual cinema platform Eventive. Each screening is available at a set time to view via the Eventive dashboard. In most cases, films will be available for on demand viewing for 24-48 hours from the start time, with the exception of the AFTRS shorts showcase that will be available for the duration of the week. Note: 'The Dry' and 'Playing with Sharks' will only be available to our North American-based delegates due to restrictions from the U.S distributor.

 

The screenings include:

  • Opening Night Screening of 'The Dry' and Q&A with Eric Bana and Robert Connolly (available from March 21 from 6:00pm EDT)

  • 'Gallipoli' Restoration Screening and Screen Talks with Mel Gibson (available March 25 from 5:30pm EDT/March 26 8:30am AEDT)

  • Closing Night Screening of 'Where Are You Now, Richard Linklater?' and Q&A with Richard Linklater (available from March 26 6:00pm EDT/ March 27 9:00am AEDT)

  • Closing Night Documentary Showcase of Valerie Taylor: Playing Sharks and Q&A with director Sally Aitken (available from March 26 8:00pm EDT)

  • AFTRS Shorts Program 1 + 2 (available from March 21 from 6:00pm EDT/ March 22 9:00am AEDT)
