CinefestOZ and WIFT Australia are thrilled to announce the incredible talents that will be joining us for the CinefestOZ WIFT Australia Writers Retreat 2023.Congratulations to the four writers participating in the program this year:

🌟 Theresa Roberts (WA)

🌟 Veronica Wain (QLD)

🌟 Fiona Cutler (TAS)

🌟 Leanne Morgan (WA)

The journey to select these amazing creatives was filled with tough decisions, as we received very strong applications from across Australia from a diverse range of female filmmakers.

The retreat is designed to provide the participants the opportunity to make significant creative progress on a scripted or non-scripted project they are the Sole or Lead writer on. To support them during the retreat, participants will receive creative consultation from script development executive and former BBC script editor Jamey Claffey.As well as the space and time to knuckle down on their projects, participants will also receive a free pass to the CinefestOZ Industry Program (31st Aug- 1st Sept), exclusive invitations to VIP networking opportunities. 
We look to hosting the participants at the festival very soon!
