The AWG NSW Committee is proud to present our first hybrid event for 2020, where award-winning writer John Collee will share his secrets to a live and virtual audience. The event will include the opportunity to ask John questions about his work and learn about the craft from an industry powerhouse.
John’s talent spans all genres, and his feature films include action thriller Hotel Mumbai, Oscar-nominated action epic Master and Commander, Oscar-nominated foreign language love story Tanna, and the Oscar-winning family musical Happy Feet.
His current projects include Dev Patel's directorial debut Monkey Man, Philip Noyce’s WW2 story Tobruk, and an 8-part adaptation of the wildly successful coming-of-age novel Boy Swallows Universe.
In-person space is limited, so be quick to secure your spot. If you are not Sydney-based or if you miss out on a ticket, we invite you to join us online from the comfort of your home, where you will have full access to the event, including submitting questions for John.
The AWG is committed to supporting our industry and practitioners in this unprecedented time, and we are excited to offer panels that are accessible online and in person. This event is offered for free to all attendees as a thank you from the AWG and Write Night committee for your support throughout the year and to celebrate more hybrid events as we head into 2021.
Thanks go to our venue partner, Knox St Bar, who have brought in the technology to make this, and future, events possible.
