Critics Club: Movie Screening and Debate
At the Critics Club, Karel Segers of the Story Department ( will guide us through a film analysis, with input from you all. What worked in the film for you; what didn't? The movie is always a surprise. We have had classics, brand new releases, blockbusters and arthouse gems. Most are English spoken, but we do offer the odd foreign language film, and even TV pilots. For a flavour of what we've had in the past, check out the photos ( A critical part of writing is understanding how to analyse and critique existing work. During these sessions, you may learn how to identify and resolve issues in your own stories and scripts. If you're new to the group, you don't have to actively participate. Feel free to come along, and observe a fun and lively discussion. Many of our members like to take notes, so perhaps bring a notebook. Finally, the venue is easy to access, but you will have to check the location beforehand so you know exactly where to go. The grandstand is on a big block, so if you're at the wrong entrance, you may be in for a bit of a walk. See you there! Cheers, Your hosts, Nir Shelter Karel Segers (also Sponsor)

What we're about

Hi Screenwriters!

This group is for those who wish to network, gain insight and share thoughts on storytelling and screenwriting. Some of us have attended screenwriting courses, others have a writer's background or interests from other related fields. If this sounds like you, please join us, attend our meetings ... and finish that yet to be produced screenplay!

We usually meet on Saturday afternoons for a film screening or a script workshop, and everybody is welcome, even if you don't have anything to show. The venue changes occasionally, but lately we have screened our films at AIE in Ultimo ( ), and discussed scripts at Paddington RSL - and online.

Our group meetings run for about three hours, from 1pm until 4pm. Occasionally we run over, so please set aside a little time afterwards if you don't want to miss anything.

If you are concerned about sharing your ideas, rest assured that whatever is discussed in the room stays in the room. Sharing your ideas and stories is a privilege and the group reflects that by respecting the rights of creators.
