With almost no barriers to entry and all the great creative I have seen on TV and Cinema in the past six months, I am expecting a substantial reaction to the call to entry. ”

Daniel Hill, Managing Director commented: “The ACES highlights the exceptional talent we have in Australia, showcasing outstanding creative on the biggest and best screen of all – the cinema screen.
