What we'll do

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.

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. The right entrance is from Wattle Street, here:

See you there!
