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.

Curated Mentorship Program

We're dedicated to showcasing your work and ensuring you're part of pivotal industry moments. Our screen mentorship program offers both traditional one-on-one sessions and intimate classroom-style gatherings with influential figures from various sectors of the screen industry. From directors to stunt coordinators, composers to marketers, we aim to bring together diverse voices for engaging discussions, practical skill-building sessions, and invaluable advice and insights. Our Screen Mentorship program will offer traditional one-one sessions along with small classroom style sessions with key international people across the screen industry.

Screen Festival

The SXSW Sydney 2024 Screen Festival is doubling down on genre filmmaking, building on the success of 2023. Additionally, we're expanding our short film programming to showcase the exceptional talent emerging from APAC and beyond. A special student showcase will also be featured, spotlighting young and emerging talent.
