Screen Ask Me Anything Networking Breakfast — Tuesday

About

Kickstart your morning with an energising breakfast and nutritious conversation. The Ask Me Anything Networking events give you access to notable Screen industry speakers and offer you a chance to ask them anything about their career in the Screen biz in an informal setting.

Ask them how they made it, what projects they say yes to, their thoughts on AI and what they’d do differently. This is not an open pitching session, but you can ask for advice and hot tips. After the AMA you’ll be able to connect with other attendees for free-range networking, over a delicious Continental breakfast. Bring questions.

Open to Platinum and Screen Badge holders only. Capacity is limited. First in, best dressed.

Our Tuesday AMA guests all come from streaming and distribution worlds. Hong Kong-based Marianne Lee is Chief of Content Acquisition and Development at Viu, the region’s leading pan-Asian streaming. Julie Eckersley is the Head of Scripted at SBS, overseeing development and production of scripted content across SBS channels and platforms. Lana Greenhalgh is the Head of Scripted Originals for the Foxtel Group. Paul Wiegard co-founded Madman Entertainment, one of Australia’s leading independent theatrical distributors, and the founder of DocPlay, a dedicated documentary streaming VOD platform.

Introduction by Kyas Hepworth, Head of Screen NSW.
Moderated by filmmaker, author and journalist Santilla Chingaipe. Her documentaries include Third Culture Kids and Our African Roots. Previously a journalist at SBS Television, she is a contributor to The Saturday Paper.
