Join us in April to hear from Jane Schoettle, TIFF Programmer

In Conversation with Jane Schoettle, Toronto International Film Festival Programmer

Meet Jane Schoettle, Programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for films from Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Germany and the US. Jane is currently in the country, supported by Screen Australia, to view new Australian feature films and provide advice on select Australian projects.

Join us in April to hear from Jane, who alongside our CEO Matthew Deaner, will discuss what she considers important in being successfully selected at one of the world's leading public film festivals and where Australian stories sit in international markets.

Find out from Jane how to get your film into TIFF, as she demystifies the selection process and maps out the different routes to festival success. Has your submission been rejected from entry? Jane will cover the next steps to getting your film seen in Toronto, plus tips for non-feature project submissions.

Don't miss this opportunity to hear directly from a key decision maker from one of our industry's most respected festivals.
