Nunga Screen features an entertaining program of independent films for all ages, with communities across regional South Australia gathering to share in culture and experience inspiring documentaries, compelling dramas, quirky animation, contemporary and traditional storytelling during this annual event.
Nunga Screen Programmer, Ngarrindjeri man Josh Trevorrow, is an established creator/producer and facilitator within the screen industry.
Mr Trevorrow fulfills the role of First Nations Arts and Culture Manager with Country Arts SA, and is a co-founder of bespoke production company Untold Productions with Katharine McPhee.
His mandate is also to "champion" more First Nations talent, in both mainstream/commercial roles and projects as well as uniquely Indigenous Stories.

"Our films this year are all South Australian and all made by First Nation filmmakers," Mr Trevorrow said.
"Film is one of the most powerful mediums not only to educate, but also to enlighten audiences about our People and Culture - We hope everyone comes out for this amazing opportunity to get together, connect, learn and have fun."
