“Thank you for connecting me with the industry both here and in Australia. I have a greater understanding of the business of writing having met with Alice (Bell) every week and the importance of having ‘product’ as a writer. I’m delighted to have made new long-term creative relationships. What you have made is so important, this year has been transformative.” – Sophie Henderson, 2014 FilmUp participant

Alongside mentorship, participants engage in group work & round tables with esteemed filmmakers, and receive wrap-around support from Script to Screen.
Previous mentors have included Scottish novelist and show runner Neil Cross (LUTHER), prolific Australian/NZ producer Tim White, Australian producer Helen Bowden (THE SLAP), legendary Australian director Rolf de Heer, and screenwriter Alice Bell (THE SLAP).
