Reciprocal access to Australian International Screen Forum

Thanks to a new collaborative partnership, attendees of the 2021 Regional to Global Screen Forum will also receive access to the 2021 Australian International Screen Forum which is taking place online from March 21-26.

These two events will create a week-long experience of bilateral conferences, screenings, meet-ups, panels sessions and workshops from New York to regional NSW’s Lennox Head.

The Australian International Screen Forum in New York City is an annual screen industry conference that aims to connect, inform and promote collaboration between the Australian and US film and television industries.
