American actress Kate Walsh will be part of this year’s CinefestOZ Industry Program along with WA and Australian film industry leaders and innovators.

CinefestOZ has responded to demand from the Australian film industry and, with support from the South West Development Commission, is proud to be presenting the 2020 Industry Program.

This year, the Industry Program will reach a global audience with the addition of an online component and will address contemporary issues in today’s challenging environment.

Industry sessions will be held at the Esplanade Hotel, situated 50m from the iconic Busselton Jetty and stunning foreshore, making it the perfect central hub location during the festival.

So join us- in person or online- for two days of inspiring talks, exciting discussions, intense debates, fantastic networking opportunities, and much more.
