What does good development look like?

Tuesday 29 APRIL, 2014, *new venue* ACADEMY CINEMA

Join other professionals this month at the Academy Cinema for an in-depth discussion on what makes effective feature film development. How do you know if a development process is making a project stronger, and what do you do if it's not? Unique voice is prized, yet are you taking the creative risks necessary to craft work that stands out?

Join development executive Emily Anderton, US writer/director Jake Mahaffy, producer Philippa Campbell and story consultant Brita McVeigh as they talk to editor Cushla Dillon about the development process, and whether or not we are truly fostering creativity.

Stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on (on STS) and a drink.
