About the role

Victorian arts organisation Cinespace is a non-profit incorporated association registered with Consumer Affairs Victoria. Cinespace works in screen arts, supporting emerging filmmakers and screen creators from diverse cultural backgrounds, both at a grass-roots community level, and also as emerging and early-career creatives move toward becoming industry professionals.
