Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan and Red Dog director Kriv Stenders will be the guest tutor for the Screenworks 2019 Directing Intensive.


Stenders, together with a leading documentary director yet to be announced, will advise 12 selected early career regional screen directors on technique, skills and project development for drama and documentary film and television.

To be eligible for the two-day workshop, to be held in Byron Bay in late August, applicants must demonstrate some experience directing content for screen and must be living in regional NSW, regional Queensland or Western Australia.

The program is delivered in partnership with the Australian Directors’ Guild (ADG), Linnaeus Estate Education Fund and with support from Create NSW, as well as support for individual participants from Screen Queensland and Screenwest.

“We are looking forward to connecting Kriv Stenders with our 2019 participants,” said Screenworks CEO Ken Crouch.

“His talent is legendary; with the success of his feature film Red Dog putting him the top 10 all time box office hits for Australian feature films and the release of his highly anticipated new feature Danger Close: The Battle for Long Tan we believe he will bring extraordinary advice to the twelve regional screen directors. We are very grateful to the ADG for sourcing him for this workshop.”
