Roundtable topic
The impact of COVID on sci-fi and the current appeal of lighter content.
Ready, Steady, Pitch! topic
We're looking for big concepts that feel international - whether they take place in Sydney or Singapore - whatever will resonate with a global audience. And we're specifically looking for big concepts that are grounded - not huge space operas but intimate character-focused pieces. And things that aren't fully dystopian, 'hell in a handbasket'. We've all seen handmaid's tale and black mirror - we're looking for something lighter at the moment.
