Cinespace has been an integral part of my film career since its inception in 2017. The programs that Cinespace have facilitated in the past have all paved a way for me moving forward in my career as a writer, director and producer. I am now thrilled to be selected for the inaugural residency program for my series, Salma's Season, which was also initially developed through Cinespace's StoryLab initiative in 2018. I am excited to see other emerging screen practitioners that come through Cinespace's residency program, and the network of brilliant and passionate creatives Cinespace continuously nurtures. It's an exciting time to be a filmmaker and an honour to be an ambassador for Cinespace.

Cinespace has been integral to my development as a filmmaker. With a focus on grass roots stories told from the perspectives of the communities they represent they’ve been a joyful part of my journey as an artist.

Cinespace has been a great support to me and my fellow collaborators in film over the years. With the help of Cinespace, we were able to access their equipment for making short films, as well as getting advice on a variety of production queries. As independent filmmakers making work with tight budgets, this access and support has been so beneficial to us! 

Cinespace's PIR program is made possible with support from the Victorian Government & the Victorian College of the Arts.
