1. CONNECT WITH YOUR PEOPLE AND
FEEL THE POWER OF THE COMMUNITY
After eight years, community spirit is still at the heart of the Big Screen Symposium. Use the event as a chance to get out of your silo and find your tribe. Here’s your opportunity to be around like-minded creatives who may be inspired by you!
2. BE CURIOUS
Curiosity is so much better than boredom, indifference or disinterest. Shake yourself out of that rut, get your feet out from under the desk and scoot down to Big Screen Symposium 2020 to hear what other filmmakers have experienced. It will open your mind and expand your opportunities.
3. BE INSPIRED AND RE-ENERGISED
Come and be inspired by the extraordinary local and international talent talking about filmmaking and storytelling in our times. You’ll come away from Big Screen Symposium 2020 knowing more about craft and process. You’ll pick up unexpected gems of knowledge and renew your energy for your creative work.
4. INVEST IN YOURSELF
This is value for money – it’s something you can do for your career that is affordable. Plus, included in your ticket are lunches, tea breaks and a party! Keep in mind, most of our international guests only come once – so if you miss the programme this year, you’ll miss it completely. The industry is transforming, have your finger on the pulse by coming to Big Screen Symposium 2020.
