Applications are now open for Screenworks 2019 Directing Intensive with Kriv Stenders (Danger Close, Red Dog) as the guest tutor.

Amazing opportunity for early career screen directors living in regional NSW, regional Queensland and Western Australia.  This two-day program is delivered in partnership with the Australian Directors’ Guild (ADG), Linnaeus Estate Education Fund and with support from Create NSW, as well as support for individual participants from Screen Queensland and Screenwest.

The deadline for applications is Monday 22 July 2019.

Twelve early career screen directors will be selected to develop their skills under the tutelage of two of Australia’s most respected screen directors. The guest tutors will address creative process and techniques for directing documentary and drama for film and television. This is a supportive environment where the participants can develop their skills and test ideas under the guidance of highly experienced industry professionals

“We are looking forward to connecting Kriv Stenders with our 2019 participants… His talent is legendary; with the success of his feature film Red Dog putting him the top10 all time box office hits for Australian feature films and the release of his highly anticipated new feature Danger Close: The Battle for Long Tan we believe he will bring extraordinary advice to the twelve regional screen directors.  We are very grateful to the ADG for sourcing him for this workshop.” explained Screenworks CEO, Ken Crouch.
