AFTRS and Screen Australia announce Talent Camp
01 June 2017
The Australian Film Television & Radio School (AFTRS), Screen Australia and the state screen agencies have announced Talent Camp, a national workshop program to provide skills development opportunities for emerging storytellers and screen content creatives from diverse backgrounds across the country.
Responding to audience demand for rich and engaging stories and the industry’s concern about the lack of diversity in the Australian screen sector, Talent Camp provides an opportunity for new talent, new perspectives and new voices that reflect the richness and depth of contemporary Australian society.
The Talent Camp workshops will focus on story development, screen producing and career pathways and will run for five consecutive days each in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth, and Darwin.
Talent Camp is seeking stories by talented creatives from under-represented communities in screen culture with reference to cultural background, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic and/ or socio-economic circumstance. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives are strongly encouraged to apply.
Talent Camp is a multi-partner screen industry initiative made possible with the support of AFTRS, Screen Australia and state screen agencies: Screen Queensland, Create NSW, Screen ACT, Film Victoria, Screen Tasmania, South Australian Film Corporation, Screenwest and Screen Territory.
Workshops in Adelaide are scheduled for November.
