Twelve Aussie creatives are off to Los Angeles for Talent USA: La, a week-long program that involves meetings, workshops and networking opportunities.
Talent USA: La is an initiative of Screen Australia and the Australian Writers’ Guild, and participants were selected due to their existing international profile or having already attracted Us interest in their work.
Film Independent and Australians in Film USA (AiF) will assist setting up the program, and AiF are also providing financial assistance to Mentor La recipients to attend the Talent USA: La program.

“The ultimate goal of the program is to empower these creators to do their best work back in Australia,
