Curiously West: Film Club
A CuriousWorks, WSU and PYT Fairfield Collaboration
Curiously West emerged out of a desire for local filmmakers to have a space space to gather, collaborate and make films.
Unlike other filmmaking spaces that are either sporadic, located in the city or distant from South West Sydney, there is a significant gap for Western Sydney filmmakers to connect with their local counterparts. Recognizing this need, a groundbreaking collaboration between CuriousWorks, Powerhouse Youth Theatre Fairfield, and Western Sydney University aims to bridge this gap by establishing a dedicated and regular space for deep collaboration and connection. Though originally led just by Addy Fong at Western Sydney University, the expansion has allowed this initiative to go beyond one-off networking events, providing filmmakers with a consistent environment that fosters experimentation, skill development, and the nurturing of their craft.
Curiously West meets fortnightly on Thursday evenings at PYT Fairfield. The sessions range from hands-on skill-building workshops, to Popcorns and Pencils sessions where filmmakers can watch and review films, to networking sessions, to collaborative film-making sessions. It’s a space where folks of different ages, cultural backgrounds, and levels of experience can come together out of a love for film-making.
CuriouslyWest has just returned after a brief hiatus for the second half of the year! Entry is free to everyone, but we request folks register their attendance here.
