The HIVE LAB brings talented filmmakers and artists together for a residential workshop to nurture screen-based creative ideas that cut across artistic boundaries. The HIVE LAB Creative Producer and Director, along with a team of skilled mentors, introduces filmmakers to ideas and potential collaborators from other art forms, and inspires artists, writers, choreographers, theatre practitioners and musicians to consider film as a creative outlet. The 2011 and 2012 HIVE LABs were led by Wendy Levy, Director of New Arts Axis, a media consultancy at the intersection of storytelling, technology and human rights.

Initiated by the Adelaide Film Festival, the HIVE LAB partners include ABC TV Arts, Screen Australia, the Australia Council for the Arts and South Australian Film Corporation.
