SCREEN TRADES - Information & Cultural Exchange


Arts & Cultural Exchange (ACE), TAFE NSW and leading industry partners present SCREEN TRADES.

SCREEN TRADES is a job training and placement initiative that is addressing the significant shortages in below-the-line jobs in the local TV and film industry, especially for underrepresented communities.

The initiative is piloting three skillsets, providing pathways to early career screen practitioners from First Nations and culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities, supported by ScreenNSW and Screenrights Cultural Fund.

Production Accounting

This pilot, led by International Production Accounting specialists, Moneypenny, will achieve a 2-day ‘Production Accounting Essentials’ masterclass for 20 students.

The masterclass will train a cohort in current practices and standards in Production Accounting for the film and TV industry, and explore professional development pathways.

When: Friday, 30 September – Saturday, 1 October (10am – 4pm).

Where: ACE, 8 Victoria Rd, Parramatta.

Places are limited, sign up here for more info.


First Nations Emerging VFX Artists

Working with education and training partner TAFE NSW, this pilot will provide an 8-week skills development course utilising key units in TAFE’s Certificate III from the Screen & Media curricula, providing participants who complete training with an employment entry level qualification.
