Bruce Beresford and Antony I Ginnane have Friday on their minds

Outgoing SPAA President Antony I Ginnane and director Bruce Beresford will speak about their knowledge, insights and no doubt some salacious stories over the next two weeks of AFTRS Friday On My Mind sessions.

Mr Ginnane will be the guest speaker on Friday 12 August.

Mr Beresford will be the guest speaker on Friday 19 August.

A maverick of the Australian film industry and outgoing SPAA president, Antony I Ginnane will address the free AFTRS session. Producer of over 60 international feature films, mini series and TV movies such as Patrick, Arctic Blast, Screamers and Dark Age, Ginanne will no doubt have plenty to say about filmmaking and the state of the industry.

Bruce Beresford, director of Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy and Moa’s last Dancer is busy both in Australia and Hollywood. He has just announced he’ll direct The White Mouse, the story of Nancy Wake, and is currently in planning for a retelling of an Australian classic with Banjo and Matilda.

Both events will be held at the Theatre AFTRS (130 Bent St), Entertainment Quarter in Sydney, 5pm.
