Central West On Screen

Dubbo Mob – What’s Your Story?

Let’s make short 2 minute stories to screen online at ABC Open, on the big screen at a party and maybe even on TV!

If you are an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australian local between 17 and 25 years old, Metro Screen want to work with you to tell local stories about your town.

Over 2 weeks we will work with your idea and help you make it at FREE workshops. We will have all the equipment and support you will need to make a broadcast quality video.

ABC Open invites regional Australians to tell their stories in photo, video, and writing, and then publishes them on the ABC website.

Metro Screen is the Centre of screen creativity in NSW, providing opportunities to emerging digital, film and TV content makers through access and training.
