10 Nov Mike Worsley (Filmmaker Director)
Mike is an award-winning executive producer with almost 20 years of TV industry experience in the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia, on BAFTA-Award winning shows such as Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Australian series including Australia’s Got Talent and Australian Ninja Warrior. Mike runs his own production company, Create & Cast, which has produced dozens of hours of entertainment including a Channel Ten comedy special, and created Australia’s first fully independent queer live stream TV series Live from Stonewall that’s had over 100K episode views to date, and featured Queer Screen-recommended movies of the week, as well as keeping creatives and performers working during the COVID-19 TV industry shutdown.
Due to his love of queer storytelling and capturing the celebration and impact of the MGFF festival, Mike joined Queer Screen in February 2015 filming coverage of the festival and events, being brought on as a Board Associate that year. He has since stepped up as Board Director in May 2020 and will continue to help push the festival forward with digital content and event coverage.
