If you are a producer/actor/writer/performer or work in the entertainment industry within film, television, theater or music – this night is for you!

As the landscape in the USA changes under President Trump, so too are the choices for Australians currently on visas and those looking to obtain a visa in the near future.

Joined by international attorney, Andrea Szew, who is an advisor, speaker and writer on immigration to the USA, this industry event is a “reality check” on how things stand.

This session will provide invaluable insight into your best options when planning to secure the right visa, as well as offering practical advice on what to ask your existing immigration attorney, and how far out to begin to plan for that visa. The talk will be followed by a Q&A.

Andrea Szew is the founder and managing attorney of Los Angeles law firm Szew Law Group, which specializes internationally in assisting individuals, and any company within the entertainment industry, secure the right visa to enter the USA to work.

This is a “one night only” event presented by Screenwise in Sydney and follows Andrea’s guest speaker presentation at SPA’s conference Screen Forever in Melbourne. Please note the bar will be open for drinks between 6-7PM. Screenwise thanks EVENTS Cinema for their sponsorship of this event.
