The conversations of life

Want to star in your own film? This documentary project wants FEARLESS people 75-plus


Screenworks and Feros Care are searching for 10 people aged 75 or over in the Ballina, Byron or Tweed Shires of NSW or Coolangatta in QLD for a series of short documentary films as part of a new project called FEARLESS.

Whether you’ve always wanted to get a tattoo or fly on the trapeze or if you’re already a dedicated ocean swimmer or in training for your next triathlon, each participant will be asked to film their challenge guided by professional filmmakers and with support from a friend, family member, volunteer or carer.

The footage will then be edited along with a filmed interview to create the final film.

Shaking off stereotypes around ageing

The films will be unveiled at an exclusive red-carpet VIP event later this year and also distributed online and at film festivals.

If you’d like to take part – or you have a family member or friend you think should get involved – why not apply?

FEARLESS is happening between early September and mid-November 2018. Applications close on Sunday 12th August 2018.

You can find more information about how to apply here or contact the Screenworks office direct on (02) 6681 1188 or
