Speaker Update: Peter Ivan to present at Youth Media Festival


Peter Ivan will now be presenting at the Youth Media Festival instead of the Summit. A reminder that Summit delegates who have paid for the Saturday are welcome to attend the talks at YMF but not the workshops.



ATOM and ACMI are excited to announce our first slate of speakers and presenters for the July Screen Futures Summit and Youth Media Festival.

Peter Ivan is a graduate of the Swinburne Film and Television School. Peter detoured through an award-winning copywriting career before throwing it all in to concentrate on his first passion – screenwriting. Peter’s first produced credit was the premier episode of Bryan Brown’s Two Twisted anthology series: ‘There’s Something About Kyanna’. He has had several screenplays optioned in Australia and Hollywood, ranging from action adventures to thrillers and comedies. Peter’s first produced feature, the family comedy Oddball (Stuart McDonald, 2015), was a major box-office success in Australia – and, better still, is much-loved by young and old alike.
