The Big Picture

Free Filmmaker Development Program

Presented by JMC Academy

Get ready to upskill, The Big Picture is here for you live and in-person! Hosted at JMC Academy Park St Campus, the St Kilda Film Festival brings you a unique series of hands-on workshops, forums, panels, exhibitions, screenings and Q&As on a diverse range of filmmaking topics with some of Australia's top emerging and established film talents. 

It's a packed day of activity that through the eyes of our participating industry experts investigates and interrogates every corner of the screen sector from practical visual effects, to First Nations’ protocols, to working with 16mm, to converging media forms, so search through here to find the topics that appeal to you the most. Best of all, IT IS ALL FREE! Make sure to register for events to ensure sure that you have reserved a spot on the day.

Commencing with a bang at 11 am, the day's offerings embrace more than thirty events including an end of day networking function open to all. There’s a lot on show with almost all commencing at the same session time throughout the day so it’s easy to get from one to another. There are some exceptions (so check the event times) but look for the ‘session’ tags at the bottom of each of the event listings to help plan out your day.

We cannot wait to see you there. A year of film school in one day… what could beat that!
