We’re so excited to share that our CEO Zareh will take part in this year’s Mentor LA program as one of four screen industry mentors.
Established in 2017, Mentor LA consists of four one-hour sessions. Three are held online and one is face-to-face in Los Angeles, starting in April. The sessions are designed to provide mentees with personalized, first-hand knowledge of the challenges and knowledge these mentors have learnt from working in the Hollywood system. Return economy airfares and living expenses will be covered in LA for the five days of the final session.
AiF executive director Peter Ritchie said: “Australians in Film’s mission is to help develop a robust and progressive community of Australian screen storytellers working internationally. Mentor LA is an opportunity for established screen professionals to give back and provide development to under-represented screen creatives, who may not necessarily have been given the same shot because of the current imbalance in the screen industry.”
