What’s it all about?
Selection for screening at a film festival is often the only ‘release’ opportunity for most shorts and many features in traditional markets but it remains a bit of a black art. Designed to help get filmmakers off to a good start, this session will feature Ruth Saunders (click here to read her bio), the woman who has been able to get so many AFTRS films into all the right festivals, and Jenny Neighbour, Programs Manager for the Sydney Film Festival (click here to read her bio).

Venue: Elwynn Lynn Conference Centre, College of Fine Arts (CoFA), Selwyn St, Paddington

Cost: Free for Siggraph members. $5 cover charge for refreshments for guests and non-members.
