ADG Director’s Cut
The Australian Director’s Guild (ADG)’s Director’s Cut conference will be held at SUNSTUDIOS in Alexandria on August 20 with an accompanying live stream.
Carrying the theme of Cutting Through The Noise, the one-day event will feature panels exploring the director’s role in a changed streaming landscape and how emerging directors can bridge the gap to paid work.
Delegates will also hear from internationally successful directors about opportunities outside Australia and have the opportunity to discuss the value of impact strategies for both unscripted and scripted productions, while also getting updates on their rights and representation.
Other topics for the event range from looking at how sets can be made more sustainable and ensuring that they are a safe space for diverse cast and crew to how directors can work with funding agencies, networks, and streamers.
Leading Australian director, Cate Shortland (Black Widow) is the ADG’s guest for First-Hand, an in-depth conversation that will delve into her work in Australia and overseas.
Other speakers include ADG president Rowan Woods, Matt Moore, Shawn Seet, Partho Sen-Gupta, Katrina Irawati Graham, Monica Zanetti, and Tin Pang with more to be confirmed over the coming weeks.
The conference program will head to Western Sydney before touring nationally over the next 12 months.
