Do you want to find out how to make your project more competitive and increase your chance of securing Screen Australia funding?
Have you made a short film and want to know what Screen Australia offers for the next step on your career pathway?
Are you developing a documentary, feature film, or digital media project and want to know which fund to apply for and how to meet Screen Australia’s eligibility criteria?
Do you want an opportunity to pitch/discuss your project with a Screen Australia executive and to be able to pick up the phone and ring Screen Australia and know the person you are talking to and better still – they know you?
Then this session is for you!
Screen Australia is the federal government’s screen agency providing funding for feature film, documentary, television drama, multiplatform content, professional development and marketing support. Additionally Screen Australia offers a development initiative called ‘Springboard’ that is designed to provide a pathway for short filmmakers with a feature film script to progress into long form feature film development and production.
Screen Australia is a critical piece in the development and financing puzzle of most production activity in Australia. This is a fantastic opportunity for Tasmanian content creators to get on Screen Australia’s radar.
Screen Australia Executives are coming down to Hobart this month to give a two hour presentation outlining their funding programs and processes. Additionally, Veronica and Tim will be available for individual half hour meetings to discuss your projects, professional career plans, Springboard or provide further detail on funding programs and initiatives.
