Future Filmmakers

Presented by Bond University

The annual Future Filmmakers event for Year 11 and 12 students considering a career in film will take place on Thursday 23 April at Bond University. Future Filmmakers is a free seminar day designed specifically to give Year 11 and 12 school students a taste of the many aspects of and jobs available in the screen industry, with speakers covering all aspects of the filmmaking business.

First-time filmmakers, experienced directors, set designers, crew coordinators, location scouts and Queensland’s major film industry body Screen Queensland will share stories and insights into their roles with students at Bond University.

The Future Filmmakers program will include:
Meet the filmmakers – Hear from film directors, writers and producers about what they do and how they got to where they are today.
Off-Screen – If you love film, but don’t want to work on set, what roles are there? We talk to film industry professionals who don’t work on set.
Unsung Heroes – Everyone knows what a director is, but what about the hidden heroes on set? We talk to some of Australia’s leading crew members about their roles.
State of the Nation – Queensland’s major film industry body, Screen Queensland, talks about the future of film.
Opportunity Knocks – Hear about the Bond University Film and Television Awards (BUFTA) – THE short film competition for Year 11 and 12 aspiring filmmakers and take a tour of Bond University’s film and TV facilities.
Workshops – Two interactive workshops about pre-production and production, led by industry professionals.

Open to schools only. The full day event is free for students and teachers to attend, but was fully booked in 2019, so book your school’s place early for 2020!
