If you are a First Nations screen maker based in South Australia and want to have your say on the future of screen programming, the SAFC invites you to join the new First Nations Screen Working Group.

As part of its commitment to growing and supporting South Australia’s First Nations screen sector, the SAFC is establishing a First Nations Screen Working Group.

South Australian First Nations screen creatives are encouraged to join the group, which aims to strengthen direct engagement between the First Nations screen sector in South Australia and the SAFC.

Meeting quarterly, the FNSWG will help the SAFC activate and maintain engagement with the First Nations screen sector in South Australia, and assist the SAFC’s First Nations programming and planning by providing advice, feedback and suggestions. Group members will collaborate, inform and assist each other in program planning for the sector.

South Australian First Nations screen creatives are invited to learn more about the SAFC’s First Nations initiatives, and the new First Nations Screen Working Group, at a special information session hosted by SAFC First Nations Strategy Executive Lee-Ann Buckskin and SAFC First Nations Industry Development Executive Nara Wilson.

Lee-Ann and Nara will present the new SAFC First Nations Screen Strategy 2020–2025, talk through the SAFC’s Indigenous collateral and provide information about the Pirrku Kuu Hub, as well as other SAFC First Nations initiatives. 

The floor will then be open to screenmakers to voice their opinions on how they wish to be supported within the screen industry.
