From TAFE Queensland to the big screen

TAFE Queensland graduate selected to be in the Strand Category at the 2023 Gold Coast Film Festival.

TAFE Queensland’s Diploma of Screen and Media (CUA51020) graduate, Lindsay Bright-Mync, saw the film he produced during his time at TAFE Queensland hit the big screen for the very first time at the prestigious 2023 Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF). The GCFF is a celebration of filmmaking and is hosted in Queensland’s iconic filmmaking location, the Gold Coast. The GCFF explores diverse stories and unique styles with an entertaining program of films, events and panels that showcase extraordinary Australian talent.

TAFE Queensland Diploma of Screen and Media graduate Lindsay Bright-Mync showcased his latest Screen and Media project, a short film titled "And Mirrors". The film portrays the aftermath of infidelity and gaslighting, as the protagonist confronts the pain that they have inflicted upon others and ultimately upon themselves.

“Being part of the Gold Coast Film Festival is an exciting opportunity to share my work publicly,” Lindsay said.

Lindsay chose to enrol in TAFE Queensland's Diploma of Screen and Media program to explore one of his many passions; film, but never considered studying it until he discovered TAFE Queensland's diploma.

“As I progressed through the course I realised my passion and love for the medium was more than I thought,” he said.

“It was great to work on films with the structure of a diploma pushing everything forward, I’ve studied in the past and this experience with TAFE Queensland felt profoundly different.”

“The teaching staff in my diploma were wonderful and I’m very glad to have had their industry-standard guidance and influence throughout."

Lindsay was part of the Strand Category on Wednesday 26 April which highlighted filmmakers of the future and showcases the best short films from graduating film students from South-East Queensland film schools and universities. The awards in this category include Best Student Short Film, Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay.
