Screenmakers Connect 2020
JOIN US ON WEDNESDAY 26 & THURSDAY 27 AUGUST
Mercury CX is excited to present a transformed virtual event this 26 & 27 August. Taking the best of SMC from world-class keynotes, deep industry insight, and live Q&A sessions and distilling this into an immersive learning experience which will also include one on one career mentoring and our renowned ABC Pitchorma live pitching event with a $15,000 first prize in funding and in-kind support from Mercury CX and ABCiview.
This year a borderless SMC Connect brings you the best from around the world, including a revealing and insightful chat with a genuinely super nice guy, EP/Writer/Showrunner Pete McTighe who is just about to start shooting a new series for Netflix and BBC. Along with a cutting edge industry panel where we delve into the world of ‘The Mandalorian’ and the new games technologies that are transforming our production models.
We’re also inviting you to lean into the interactive opportunities of an online event, which includes the chance to apply for and be matched to an appropriate mentor for your very own half-hour career mentoring session. We have a star roll call of professional industry mentors who are contributing their time, so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to gain insider knowledge, sharpen the focus on your next steps, and build connections as you advance along your career pathway.
For the bold and the brave, we are once again running the entertaining, high octane Pitch-o-rama pitching competition online – with a $15k prize up for grabs co-funded by ABCiview and Mercury CX.
