Screen community out in force

Sydney’s screen community came out in force on Tuesday night to Metro Screen’s forum, You’re On Your Own Kid, to consider its response to Screen Australia’s cuts to the sector.

We no longer feel alone!! Thank you to everyone who was there on the night – both future and established filmmakers and also representatives from Screen Australia, Screen NSW, Australian Directors Guild, Screen Producers Australia, Australian Writers Guild, Screenrights and the Arts Law Centre.

We’re not out of the woods yet but its great to know that so many people across the industry share our serious concerns about screen pathways and what our screen culture will look like in five years time.

But there wasn’t enough time on the night… While it’s still fresh we’d love to get your feedback on the state of the emerging sector, Metro Screen’s future and/ or your screen career journey. If you weren’t at the forum we also want to hear from you. Send us an email to have your say.
