“Metro Screen gave me an opportunity where I would be trained. I had the story in me and Metro Screen provided me with the chance to put my story onto the screen.” Wayne Blair, Director of The Sapphires, made his first two short films with Metro Screen.

It is a very exciting time for indigenous production in Australia. Earlier this year Screen International Magazine stated that the Most Exciting Writers and Directors are coming from Indigenous communities.

“25% of all short films made by Indigenous filmmakers across Australia in the past four decades have been supported by Metro Screen”. As recorded in the Black List, published by Screen Australia.
