Networking events like this really brings in a lot of knowledge from our speakers that helps our industry learn more on all sorts of areas. When you have a room of like minded creatives that like to connect and share their projects this can bring in a workable team and over my years I have seen so many projects fired up where everyone begins to get entry and build credits Ms Russo says. Film biz there is a lot to learn and we aim to present speakers that can divide this up in all ways that can help and guide and showcase people work.
The aim of QFTE is to grow them more into regional areas, and combine workshops in the future and other incentives with Film Nights to launch pad other Indie projects in collaboration. We are open to hearing ideals and want to work with other brands and organizations that can have win win.
