Miff 37º South Market 2019 - PostScript & Direct
PostScript & Direct is part of the 37º South Market, which brings the global financing marketplace to Melbourne in the opening days of the Melbourne International Film Festival.
The South Australian Film Corporation is offering up to 15 places for South Australian directors and screenwriters to participate in the prestigious MIFF 37º PostScript & Direct networking program. This event will take place at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre, on Sunday 04 August.
For screenwriters, this event is an opportunity to introduce themselves to 37º South Market producers, in a series of up to six one-to-one 15-minute meetings. These meetings are intended to assist screenwriters in honing their pitching skills and broadening their producer contact base.
Directors will be able to introduce themselves to 37º South Market producers in a series of one-to one meetings, in which the director will be able to discuss their previous work, genre interest and aspirations. Directors will also be able to further their pitching skills, potentially positioning themselves to direct projects that producers may have on their slate, and to further broaden their contact base.
This series of meetings will be followed by a networking event.
What this opportunity entails
If your application is successful, the SAFC will cover:
- the cost of registration estimated at $350 directly to MIFF 37 South Market;

While the program schedule is being finalised by 37 South Market, please note that registrations will open from noon on Sunday 04 August at the Forum Theatre, and the program itself will take place approximately from 1pm to 5pm. SAFC understands that all delegates will be invited to the market closing night drinks of MIFF 37º.
A detailed program will be provided closer to the event.
