Screen Australia and WIFT Australia’s ElevateUs: Applications due

January 11 @ 5:00 pm

Screen Australia’s Gender Matters Taskforce and WIFT Australia have partnered on a new mentorship program aimed at empowering women and gender-diverse practitioners from across the screen industry, from production through to distribution and marketing.

Mentors already confirmed include Mind Blowing Films founding director Mitu Bhowmick Lange, Stan commissioning editor Donna Chang, NITV head of commissions Marissa McDowell, showrunner Vicki Madden, producer Julie Ryan and actor Aaron Pedersen.

WIFT Australia’s recently announced partnership with Stage 32 will also facilitate a variety of international mentors from companies such as Amazon Studios, Warner Bros. and the Verve Talent & Literary Agency.

As part of the three-month program, mentees will have access to the mentors for guidance, industry insights and practical advice tailored to their career goals. It will run to a structured framework, including regular mentorship sessions, panel events, and exclusive industry insights

Prospective mentors are invited to register, while all women and gender-diverse practitioners in the industry, regardless of interest or skill level, are similarly encouraged to apply to participate as a mentee.

There is no cost for participation. Successful mentor and mentee matches will be announced in February.

ElevateUs is also supported by Screen NSW, Screen Tasmania, Screen Territory, and the Cuthill Family Foundation.
