Visionary Western Australian Screen Fund Expanded to Include Post-Production, Digital and Visual Effects Incentive

During an Industry Panel at CinefestOZ, Screenwest announced the State Government Supported Western Australian Screen Fund guidelines are now live on the Screenwest website and will include a rebate incentive of up to twenty percent for post-production, digital and visual effects (PDV) work completed for screen projects within Western Australia.
