Framed Networking Sessions


Supported by Film Victoria, Framed examines aspects of the screen industry including new media, career pathways and professional development, crew roles and creating screen‐based content. Framed aims to support the professional development of emerging and independent screen practitioners by providing practical advice and knowledge within a setting that enables an open discussion of industry issues, and fosters a sharing of experience and industry networking.

Please note there are currently no scheduled upcoming FRAMED sessions.

Framed Industry Seminars are a series of panel discussions funded by Film Victoria.



Attendance is free for Open Channel members.
