Indie short film festival Freshflix are hosting a two-day conference at Vivid

Freshflix have run short film festivals in Sydney in breweries, cafés and creative spaces. They’re now preparing for a two-day Emerging Filmmakers’ Conference as part of Vivid Ideas, which will include a Freshflix Short Film Festival on the Sunday night, as well as workshops, talks and industry speed dating for young-gun filmmakers.

Over the two-day conference, cofounder Claudia Pickering will be speaking alongside other Aussie directors who’ve made a dent in the industry. There’ll be panel talks with grants and distribution experts. And there’s a ‘Fake it til you make it’ workshop that equips participants with head shots, bios and an industry-ready resume for $40. 

Prices start from $15 for a single session, from $55 for full-day tickets, or $110 for the whole weekend.
