Program overview

The Screenwest Interactive Pilot Fund provides funding support for the development and/or production of high-quality original interactive digital media content projects, including:

  • VR (Virtual Reality)
  • AR (Augmented Reality)
  • MR (Mixed Reality)
  • XR (Extended Reality)
  • Video games (including Serious Games which may have the potential to effect social change)
  • Multi-platform projects

All of which should be intended for release to national and international audience and have a well-designed procedural narrative.

This is a special pilot fund designed to allow Screenwest to explore engagement with the West Australian interactive sector. Screenwest is looking to support local games developers and interactive practitioners. It is anticipated the outcomes of this fund will assist in securing future pathways for national and international partnerships and leverage innovative funding to create a sustainable industry in the state for the long term.

Projects that apply for this fund will need to have a well-defined project plan that consists of professionally created content that will be distributed on a digital platform and/or screen-based device that is capable of interactivity with the end user. Whilst a market attachment (such as platform or publishing interest) is not necessary to be able to apply, demonstrated market engagement will be a significant factor in assessing the merits of competitive applications.

The Screenwest Terms of Trade apply to all Screenwest funding and support programs, including special initiatives.  To the extent of any inconsistencies, variations and/or omissions between the Terms of Trade and Guidelines, the Guidelines shall prevail.
