Think West Festival - Yarn panel

For something a bit different, Yarn held a panel discussion recently at the inaugural ThinkWest Festival - a festival of philosophy and culture across Melbourne's inner west, which is where Yarn is based. Produced by the School of Life, the festival featured more than 40 workshops, tours, classes and special events.

We were chosen by the festival as one of the local grant recipients and our panel was titled "Storytelling: The Moving Image and Social Impact". Bridget moderated the conversation, and along with Katrina, we invited our friends and colleagues Producer Mary Minas and Editor Robert Fearon to join the panel. Held at Back Alley Sally's in Footscray we discussed how to tell challenging stories in film and documentary while also creating a sustainable career. Many thanks to program producer Anna Schoo - it was a really fun night. Onwards to ThinkWest 2017!
