The Australian Directors Guild sent me to Melbourne International Film Festival to participate in the Accelerator program as part of their new gender initiative. The program was intensive, most days starting at 8:30am and not finishing until after 11pm but it was a terrific series of lectures, panels and parties. All of the special guests were amazing and the other filmmakers were not only exceptionally talented, they were also really nice! I’ve returned home with a renewed focus. Now let’s get Splitters made already!
