The Sundowner tradition is growing strong in Sydney with fantastic turnouts for both of our July and August meetups. We had a killer line-up of special guests for both months, featuring the Editors and Assistants from the world of Documentary and Feature Drama.

July - Documentary
Andrea Lang ASE, Andrew Cooke ASE, Antoinette Ford, Gavin Banks, Gretchen Peterson, Hilary Balmond, Harriet Clutterbuck ASE, Lindi Harrison ASE, Sally Fryer ASE and Sarah Hatzon.

It’s so encouraging to see our members coming along in such great numbers to support one another and be a part of our vibrant post production culture. These meetups happen on the last Sunday of every month and we look forward to seeing you all on September 24th at the Keg and Brew in Surry Hills at 2pm. September's theme will be announced in a couple of weeks so keep an eye out.
