WHAT IS SUNRISE?
SUNRISE bridges the gap between the established film industry and the exciting possibilities that exist outside it.

SUNRISE is about new opportunities in the Australian film industry. It is a two-way door providing new talent access to the film industry while giving the industry a chance to see ideas and meet people that usually would not get in.

SUNRISE is an independent, impartial organisation established in 1997 by its Director, Shani Dowling. Our close links to all sectors of the film industry allow us to provide incentives, direction and encouragement for fledgling and established producers, directors, writers, distributors and studios.

SUNRISE's signature event is an annual pitching night for new Australian film concepts. The 2000 event will be our third.

This event is the culmination of our nationwide search for the key ingredient of the filmmaking process - great ideas. It is open to anyone with a brilliant story, whether they have connections with the film business or not.

SUNRISE puts these outstanding new concepts in front of an audience of producers, directors, writers and distributors. These are the people with the means to turn great ideas into great new Aussie films.

In 1999 the immense interest of enthusiastic newcomers and passionate members of the filmmaking community led to the creation of the SUNRISE Chat’Fest evenings. These weekly, open forums, bring people at all levels of achievement in the industry together to work through current, relevant film issues.

SUNRISE invites key industry figures to talk at these nights and to answer questions about getting a film made, the nature of the industry, specific roles, the international and local markets, funding bodies, scripting etc. The informal structure of the discussions and relaxed environment of the Exchange Hotel in Balmain Sydney have contributed to their huge success. Everyone is welcome at the SUNRISE Chat’Fest evenings.

In 2000, SUNRISE will continue to find new ways to ignite and fuel the passions of the Australian Film Industry. Whether we are discovering that great new feature film idea or forging powerful new creative relationships, SUNRISE will continue to provide support and encouragement along the path to production.
