Directing Diversity

Working with diversity brings its own set of triumphs, challenges, opportunities and interactions for both directors and cast.

This unique panel and workshop hybrid will examine approaches to performance from both angles to reveal innovative and often personal techniques that embrace a new kind of physical and emotional depth in connecting with the process and ultimately audiences. Join a panel made up of directors, performers and industry professionals who work within areas of physical, cultural and gender diversity on screen and who will examine trends and approaches from the UK and Australia in getting the best of both worlds.

This workshop is a must for all directors and performers.

Featuring festival guest and award-winning disability rights campaigner and presenter Adam Pearson. Adam appeared alongside Scarlett Johansson in the BAFTA-nominated, Under the Skin. Also featured is award winning film and commercial director Stevie Cruz-Martin whose directorial debut Pulse, was the first Australian film to ever win the coveted Busan Bank Award in South Korea.

Panel moderator will be casting director, acting coach and founder of PAC Screen Workshops Annie Murtagh-Monks.
