RIDE Shorts Encore Screening

  • Presented by Screen Queensland
  • Australia

These four inspiring and diverse short films were created via Screen Queensland’s RIDE Shorts initiative (standing for Respect, Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality). The initiative granted Queensland filmmakers from under-represented backgrounds $55,000 each towards the development and production of their short films, to build careers and generate industry opportunities. The filmmakers were also mentored by Unless Pictures’ Meg O’Connell and Jackson Lapsley-Scott.
