In a prime time, half hour documentary series on ABC2, Opening Shot gives up to six young directors, [aged 35 years and under], the chance to reveal something surprising about life in Australia today, and to ‘fire an opening shot’ into the national conversation.
Opening Shot is an industry development initiative supported by Screen Australia and ABC2 to help develop a new generation of Australian filmmakers.
