The panel will include screen industry representatives Seph McKenna, Head of Production, Roadshow Films and Joseph Maxwell, Head of Documentaries SBS, who will be joined by historians Associate Professor Paul Sendziuk, The University of Adelaide and Dr Kiera Lindsey, UniSA. Speakers will discuss high impact stories from South Australia’s past that could translate to big and small screens globally.

Maximising the true potential of Australian content for a global audience involves finding new, rich material and moving away from the well-known paths and into new territory - South Australian territory.

Moderator Sandy George will lead the discussion between historians and screen industry representatives about opportunities and challenges of translating history to the screen.
