With his broad experience in the film world, Jeffery has also served on juries and participated in speaking engagements at SXSW, DOC NYC, Slamdance, Palm Springs International Shortfest, Nantucket Film Festival IFP and this year adds St Kilda Film Festival to the list. Jeffrey will be attending the Festival across the 10 days and will be also participating in the free Big Picture Filmmaker Development Day on Saturday 20 May.
