FILM-COM Down Under is a financing, packaging & distribution market that traditionally brings filmmakers together with Hollywood executives. It is a unique event for both sides of the industry, giving film makers an opportunity to pitch projects and connect with experts in the field in both formal and informal settings whilst creating valuable relationships that can help further their development and film careers.
With local support from The City of Perth, Film Com Down Under is packed full of community engaging to suit aspiring film makers/directors/producers, actors, behind the scenes workers or the die hard movie fanatic that simply enjoys a good movie!
