Amplifying queer voices and empowering real people to share their stories, this workshop will provide the opportunity to learn fundamental filmmaking techniques. The University of Melbourne's Victorian College of the Arts will offer one participant an award of a free enrolment to the VCA Film and TV Winter Adult Intensive (valued at $440 for three days in July 2017).

Workshop 9.30am to 1.30pm

This workshop is designed for budding filmmakers. This will be a very practical and collaborative workshop for a small group of people to write, direct, shoot and edit a two-minute film together.

Workshop coordinator, Kate Lefoe is a filmmaker and recent graduate from the VCA with a Masters of Film and Television (Narrative). Kate’s short films include Under Pressure (MQFF 2011), Plunge (MQFF 2015) and co-directing a documentary with David Muir It’s Who We Are (MQFF 2014).

Lauren Anderson is a freelance filmmaker with a Masters of Narrative Direction and a Masters of Screenwriting from the Victorian College of the Arts, and was the winner of the 2016 Australian Writers Guild New Writers’ Script Competition, TV and Web series category. Lauren’s short films include Vigilant! Healthy! Wholesome! (MQFF 2011) and Love & Other Red Spot Specials (MQFF 2010, Best Australian Short Queer Film).
