Film and distribution consultant Beatrice Neumann, writer/producer Meg LeFauve (Inside Out, Captain Marvel), producer Kristina Ceyton (The Babadook, Cargo, The Nightingale), Screen Herd content strategist Beatrix Holland and Bonsai Films founder Jonathan Page are among those to speak at women collective Dame Changer’s upcoming Screen Tank event.
To be held in May in Sydney, Screen Tank offers the opportunity to learn from senior industry specialists about how to accelerate screen projects to market.
Twelve successful applicant projects will take part in an intensive three-day workshop, including a project market review session. At the conclusion of the program, teams will have the opportunity to pitch their projects to distributors in one-on-one meetings and receive constructive feedback.
Acquisitions and distribution executive Beatrice Neumann, of Inside Pictures, will facilitate the program. Prior to her current role, Neumann worked in acquisitions on films such as Fishtank, The Cove and I Am Love.
“The inaugural Screen Tank 2018 was an incredibly empowering experience for everyone involved,” said Neumann. “I particularly savoured the atmosphere of collaboration in which speakers openly shared their knowledge and wealth of experience and look forward to creating more opportunities for mid-career women to accelerate their projects.”
As part of the program, producer Kristina Ceyton and executive producer Jonathan Page will present a case study on the success of the cult hit film The Babadook.
