You’ve always dreamt of telling the world’s stories, you’ve been to film school and hey you even have a camera, so what’s stopping you ?
Part-inspiration and a bit of a how-to: take the plunge, pack up the backpack and make your first doco . Tips, advice and lessons learnt from David Fedele, an independent one-person filmmaker, director, producer, cinematographer, editor and distributor.
Join us for a short screening of David’s short film BIKPELA BAGARAP (Big Damage) which looks at illegal logging in Papua New Guinea, and the impact this is having on local communities and the environment. This is David’s first film, made immediately after doing a ten-day documentary filmmaking course in London – buying a small camera, computer, and one-way ticket to PNG.
