Along with an open call for submissions, the Film Industry Reference Group has met, a number of national and international industry professionals have been interviewed and discussion groups have been formed around the themes of the review.
The Review continues through until end September 2013 and therefore the focus of this Open Session is to present initial findings and give attendees the opportunity to contribute comment and thought.
