Excellence in Craft with WIFT Australia
March 3 at 4pm eastern
Excellence in Craft is back in 2022 with a Mexican bang!
In this masterclass we’ll meet with Argentinian/Australian Leticia Cáceres who is a writer and director for both stage and screen. Most recently she directed six episodes of the drama series Bump for the Australian streamer Stan. She will be in conversation with Mexican/American writer/director Katina Medina Mora (Emily in Paris, Firefly Lane, Selena) who will share with us some of her journey from the independent Mexican film industry, to shooting with Lily Collins in Paris for Netflix. What she has learnt, what not to do and what the future holds for her. Some of the burning and delicate questions that they’ll touch on are: who gets to direct big budget shows for the large streamers? How to navigate when you’re pigeonholed as a creator? Does your heritage and nationality always make you the best filmmaker of your culture’s stories, or can other creators take that role on without being ridiculed and scrutinised?
All of this and much more awaits on this International Women’s Day special of Excellence in Craft in collaboration with WIFTI and WIFT Australia (Queensland chapter).
