Byron Bay networking event for screen professionals

SCREENWORKS is organising a series of networking events around the region to bring screen industry creatives together to make connections, share ideas and form collaborations.

The next event will be at 7pm on Tuesday 17 September at the Junction, corner of Fletcher and Jonson Streets in Byron Bay.

Byron mayor Simon Richardson will be talking about Creative Hubs, the importance of encouraging clusters and how the council can support the screen industry.

"Networking is a great way to conquer the isolation which is common for a large proportion of the Northern Rivers creative community," said Screenworks General Manager Jill Moonie.

"As the regional film office, Screenworks creates opportunities for screen practitioners to network with peers and incoming industry professionals.

"Networking is universally acknowledged as a vital part of promoting, ideas, discussions and connections.

"Filmmaking is a collaborative process and so it is important that screen practitioners make and maintain connections with their local industry peers."

Screenworks is a not for profit organisation, responsible for attracting production to, and nurturing production in the Northern Rivers and has a directory of emerging and experienced screen industry professionals.

This free event is open to anyone working in or involved in the screen industry with drinks and food on sale at the bar.
