Managing Director of Film Finances Australasia Anni Browning (pictured left) and Hunt for the Wilderpeople producer Leanne Saunders (pictured right) have been added to the line-up for Touchstones for Screen Practitioners – this year’s industry day at CinefestOZ.
Leanne recently joined the NZ Film Commission as Head of Development and Production and has produced seven films, with Hunt for the Wilderpeople recently becoming the highest grossing independently financed NZ film. As Managing Director of Film Finances Australasia, one of only two major companies providing completion guarantees/bonds to the screen industry in Australia, Anni sees many projects cross her desk each year.
Presented by Screenwest and Screen Australia, the day will see a collective of the industry’s best come together to share an incredible wealth of knowledge and advice.
Moderated by Sandy George, key discussion themes of the day will focus on the intertwining relationship between business acumen and creative vision, on increasing audiences and on filmmaking on low budgets, making it truly a day that anyone in the industry and filmmaking community should not miss.
