What’s Your Story?

Metro Screen in partnership with ABC Open are coming to the Central Coast to help you present your region on screen. We’re looking for local residents to make short two-minute doco’s to be seen online, on the big screen and maybe even TV! What’s your story?

We will be looking for stories across a broad spectrum – local characters, culture, history and indigenous stories. Special workshops have been designed to help you develop your doco idea and to make it – and we will provide all the equipment and support that you will need.
