Meet the Filmmaker


Film has embedded itself in the psyche of the modern world. We flock to the cinema in droves and, when we can, we love to re-visit our favourite films again and again. But what does it take to create these stories? What challenges and surprises face those who endeavour to make them?

Now is your chance to get behind the lens and receive an insider glimpse into the world of filmmaking with Riverside Theatres’ Meet The Filmmaker. Our film season brings you the best of contemporary and classic films with an exclusive access to the writers, directors, producers and artists who create them.

A diverse range of films from Australia and around the world with special Q&A sessions following each film. Experience the magic of Cinema and get inspired by some of the greatest contemporary filmmakers at Riverside Theatres.
