If you’re an early career screen practitioner based in Victoria, you can’t miss Make It.

Make It is presented by AFTRS with Principal Partner Film Victoria and Media Mentors Australia and is designed for those who want to develop a career in the exciting, flourishing local screen, broadcast and gaming industries. The two-day event will be jam-packed with industry professionals ready to give you specialist career advice and inspire you to survive and thrive professionally.

We’ve gathered some of the best creatives in television, online, film, VFX and gaming to share their secrets for success, along with their mistakes. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet lots of other practitioners in our speed networking events.

Make It is your chance to:

  • Work out what path in the screen and media industries is the right one for you

You’ll have the opportunity to network with experienced practitioners, explore a range of career paths, learn more about how to get your own ideas into production and get inspired by a whole lot of opportunities you didn’t even know existed.
