Sightlines: Filmmaking in the Academy 2023


​The University of South Australia’s Creative People, Products and Places Research Centre (CP3) in collaboration with the Australian Screen Production Education and Research Association (ASPERA), is pleased to announce the fourth Sightlines festival to be held from June 29-30 in Tarndanya, Adelaide, South Australia.


This event will run alongside the 2023 Australian Screen Production, Education and Research Association (ASPERA) conference, to be held at Flinders University in Adelaide from June 28-29.


Sightlines 2023 will be part festival and part symposium.  It continues to have two main purposes: to showcase the full range of screen production that occurs in the higher education sector; and to contribute to the development of screen production as an academic research discipline. The focus of this event will be screenings and demonstrations of screen-based creative practice research (showcasing completed works and works in-progress), drawing in practitioners working with an array of platforms and methodologies.

The event will be held on and around UniSA's City West Campus.
