Modelled on You Can’t Ask That, this session brings a group of diverse screen practitioners together to face some hard questions about their roles and representation in the industry. Australia’s screen landscape publicly supports inclusivity, but is it privately still struggling to resolve the tension between content creation for mainstream and niche audiences? To what extent have questions around inclusivity versus tokenism impacted this? Postulating that misconceptions and biases are at the heart of these issues, our panelists will bring their uniquely lived experiences to the discussion and tackle the tough questions people have been too scared to ask.
Introduced by SDIN Chair Courtney Gibson.
