Being a screenwriter is no longer just about what’s written on the page, it’s also about keeping track of your story through the long development journey and knowing how to target a market for your work.

AFTRS Head of Screenwriting Pieter Aquilia leads a discussion on the business of storytelling. She is joined by Peter Herbert, AFTRS Head of Screen Business; Nathan Mewett an awarded Western Australian filmmaker with over 10 years’ experience working in the Perth film industry and who is currently studying AFTRS’ Master of Arts Screen: Screenwriting; and AFTRS Master of Screen Arts: Directing (2012) alumni Maziar Lahooti who is preparing to direct his debut feature Below, a darkly comic action-drama which will shoot in WA in early 2019 and be distributed by Madman Entertainment in Australia/NZ.

Event includes networking lunch 1 – 2pm
