Luke Davies, Alethea Jones, Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian and Columbia Pictures’ director of creative development Jiao Chen will be the mentors in this year’s Mentor La program.

Applications are now open for the development program for mid-level screen professionals. Applicants must be Australian residents currently living in Australia.

Australians in Film (AiF) and Screen Australia are encouraging applications from groups currently under-represented in the Australian screen industry including women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disabilities, Lgbtqi and gender diverse people.

Established in 2017, Mentor La consists of four one-hour sessions. Three are held online and one is face-to-face in Los Angeles, starting in April.

The sessions are designed to provide mentees with personalized, first-hand knowledge of the challenges and knowledge these mentors have learnt from working in the Hollywood system.
