In 2018, I received an internal CQU grant to fund the first phase of the project Queensland Film Festivals: mapping the state’s festival landscape. With my colleague Dr Tess Van Hemert, Lecturer in Entertainment Industries at QUT, we are embarking on a mapping of all film festivals across Queensland to begin our longer investigation into the role film festivals play in developing and nurturing local culture across Queensland.
A one page summary of the project can be found here.
Early findings will be shared with the sector. Our first intended presentation (if accepted!) is at the 2018 SSAAANZ conference in Melbourne, November 21-23.
We welcome information or communication about the project – please email me using the contact form of this website or via l.ellison[@]cqu.edu.au
