Attention all filmmakers, film students and film enthusiasts: cancel your Friday after-work plans.
The Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) runs a weekly free event that brings successful film professionals to ACMI to discuss various aspects of the industry. Running from March until November, these ‘Friday On My Mind’ talks take place from 6pm until 7pm, although occasionally the event will also include a film screening. Guest speakers have so far included actor Eric Bana, and filmmakers Matthew Saville and Tony Ayres, with many more to come.
These intimate talks are a great opportunity to hear from the country’s leading filmmakers and ask your own questions towards the end of the session.
Address: ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne Vic 3000
When: Fridays, 6pm (check the website to confirm)
Damage: free – but you will need to pick up a ticket from the ACMI box office (open from 10am)
