Genevieve Grieves, co-creator of First Nations-led production company GARUWA, is the Natalie Miller Fellowship recipient for 2023.
Natalie Miller has so often been the only woman on boards, she has a t-shirt that says "Gentlemen and Natalie". So she's pleased to see the fellowship that was started in her name continue to bolster female leaders in the screen industry.
Since being awarded the 2022 Natalie Miller Fellowship grant, Melbourne Women in Film Festival director Sian Mitchell has travelled to France and Canada to gather knowledge on events similar to her own and establish international ties.
Melbourne Women in Film Festival director Sian Mitchell will consult with her international counterparts on how to build opportunities for women and gender diverse creatives as the recipient of this year's Natalie Miller Fellowship.
Last year's Natalie Miller Fellow Bridgette Graham is establishing her own Path to Audience, launching a new marketing consultancy in Melbourne.
You won't see Marvel films or 'Star Wars' playing at Melbourne's Cinema Nova, something co-founder Natalie Miller jokes is "either clever or stupid, I'm not sure which". For 30 years, the Carlton cinema has carved a niche by sticking to its brand of arthouse cinema programming, and is today the largest independent cinema in the Southern Hemisphere.
