Are you a mid-career female writer or director with a penchant for Genre? Bunya Productions is hosting a Genre Masterclass Program with internationally renowned director Jeremy Podeswa (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Six Feet Under, The Handmaid’s Tale) and writer and showrunner Raelle Tucker (Supernatural, True Blood, Jessica Jones).
We are seeking female writers, writer/directors or directors with a compelling idea for a TV series or feature that would benefit from a bespoke program of masterclasses and one-to-one mentoring with Jeremy and Raelle.
Supported by Screen Australia’s Gender Matters Brilliant Careers initiative, this bespoke residential workshop is part of Bunya Productions ENGENDERED program that seeks to support female creatives from diverse backgrounds to develop their TV and feature ideas. Ideas from female creatives living regionally are encouraged. Up to 8 mid-career creatives – or creative teams – will be selected to attend the workshop that will take place from the 17th to the 20th of December 2018 in the Kangaroo Valley. Travel and accommodation expenses will be paid by the ENGENDERED initiative.
Applicants need to have worked in the film and television industry as a writer or director, or have extensive writing experience in theatre or publishing. Applicants must be able to travel to Sydney/Kangaroo Valley in December to be part of the workshop. The ideas/scripts that the successful applicants bring to the workshop will remain their own property.
This workshop is supported by Screen Australia’s Gender Matters Brilliant Careers initiative in association with Shark Island Institute.
