The writer/director of Evicted, Rowan Devereux, producer Sophie Saville, and some of the cast, will also be coming along, offering aspiring filmmakers in the region an opportunity to attend a unique indie filmmaking workshop and learn from a team that has been through it all.

They will take you through the film-making process and teach you about the fundamentals of storytelling, self-funding, filming, sound, editing, and more.

They will also take you behind-the-scenes and speak about the making of Evicted and advice on navigating the Australian industry.

This professional development workshop will provide valuable insights for teachers and budding filmmaking students.

It provides practical and professional advice, resources and tools and is an incredible opportunity to learn from two innovative and successful independent filmmakers who are working in the industry today.

“This is the sort of workshop we wish we had available when we were starting in the industry as it would have saved us a lot of time, money and headaches,” Sophie Saville told News Of The Area.

‘Evicted! A Modern Romance’ is all about four spuriously employed housemates on the verge of eviction who trawl Sydney’s fraught rental market in search of a new place to call home.

With an impending eviction hanging over their heads, freshly unemployed Maggie, gig-economy worker Will, and feuding couple Isabelle and May, embark on a seemingly futile hunt for an affordable share house.

Evicted! A Modern Romance has the right mix of quirkiness and drama as it explores the lives of four millennial housemates, as they embark on a seemingly fruitless search of looking for a home to rent in Sydney, as they find themselves on the verge of eviction.

The screenings also conclude with an exclusive Q&A session by writer and director Rowan Devereux and producer Sophie Saville.
