Market Partnerships

Our Indigenous Market Partnership programs provide development and production funding for content by Western Australian Indigenous filmmakers, usually following a particular theme. They are designed to foster local Indigenous filmmaking talent and provide them with a clear pathway to audience.

These special initiatives run throughout the year in collaboration with market partners such as NITV and ABC.
