24 year old Cynthia Coady I started off as a videographer for the Movie Maverick’s last year, I really enjoyed working on the visuals and collecting sound bites of peoples thoughts on the festival. This year I’ve taken on the role of Digital Marketer, inspired by the reviews left about the marketing the previous year. I wanted a role that would be challenging and engaging. I want to use my time within this role to develop and learn something new. I’m on a mission this year to finally start doing something I enjoy and working for the Movie Maverick’s has helped with that. A lovely group of people on a mission to get the community involved with cinema. We hope to create a conversation around films and with this year’s theme on utopia, show the difference in perspective from around the world.
