The Screen Industry program offers a dynamic platform for professionals across the screen industry to refine their skills, propel their careers, and stay abreast of the latest advancements. Through an array of workshops, seminars, and events—including live director commentary, expert-led workshops, AMA sessions, and pitch opportunities—it provides a space for continuous learning and collaboration. More than just a venue for professional growth, it serves as a gathering point for all industry members to converge, celebrate their shared passions, and drive innovation collectively.
