What is 10 x 10?

10 x 10 is a free project development workshop. We meet every month at 7pm at Gertrudes Brown Couch, 30 Gertrude St Fitzroy in Melbourne. Filmmakers can screen up to 10 minutes of their non-fiction works-in-progress and receive 10 minutes of directed feedback in a supportive environment. It's a great opportunity to see some fantastic work, and also to be a part of the Melbourne independent film community.

We present up to 4 projects at our monthly screenings. If you would like to screen please contact Benj and Gen at documentary3000@gmail.com The 10 x 10 format was created by www.doculink.org.

July 10 x 10 - boys being boys and life changing stem cell treatment

Welcome to Winter!

July’s 10 x 10 warmed the cold that’s settled over Melbourne these last few weeks with two great projects being screened.

We are now looking for people to screen at August’s 10 x 10 on WEDNESDAY 5th AUGUST at 7PM. If you would like to screen something, or know someone who wants some great feedback from people in the film making business and people in the film watching business, get in touch!

Everyone who has screened so far has left with amazing feedback, thoughts and opinions that have enriched their project, along with meeting new people and making friends. If you want to screen something, email Benj and Gen at documentary3000@gmail.com

June’s screening profiled 2 great projects from Kai Raisbeck, and Pia Niebel and James Fleming


Kai Raisbeck kicked the evening off with PARRIWANTI - great intimate look into aboriginal youth and one of the most creative dance sequences and filming we’ve seen!

Parriwanti (Boys) is a film about what five young boys enjoy in their lives in a remote community six hours east of Broome, Western Australia. The boys tell stories about their relationship to the land and the things that they do when they are not at school.

Returning with LITTLE MOUNTAINS, Pia Niebel and James Fleming showed developments with their touching story of Sierra

Two and a half year-old Sierra has severe cerebral palsy and may never walk or talk, although her intellect is not affected by the disorder. Undeterred by the risks or the financial challenges, Sierra’s parents, Karen and Shane, are fighting to raise $20,000 to get Sierra controversial stem cell treatment and physiotherapy in Europe. A film about hope and fighting for the one you love, Little Mountains intimately portrays the Hill family’s extraordinary approach to dealing with Sierra’s condition, their journey to the high tech private clinics of Europe and the bio politics of emerging stem cell technologies.
