FILM FESTIVALS AUSTRALIA PROGRAM LAUNCH

There are only 2 cities in the world that are officially known as an UNESCO City of Film and Sydney is one them - making it the perfect place for the launch of Film Festivals Australia a new initiative pioneered by Metro Screen.

The Film Festivals Australia program has organically grown out of decades of experience and networking to become a formalized resource to develop audiences as well as providing technical, marketing and production support.

With the support of City of Sydney and Screen NSW, the Lord Mayor Clover Moore officially launched Film Festivals Australia program and online calendar at Paddington Reservoir in Sydney on Thursday 3 April 2014.
