An initiative in collaboration with Fremantle Press, Magabala Books and Margaret River Press
The Adaptable initiative is designed to increase the number of Western Australian literary stories, particularly those from underrepresented groups and Indigenous writers, being adapted for the screen.
Adaptable Funding will provide up to three (3) creative teams development funding to adapt a chosen book from the presenting publishers into a concept document suitable for submission in a Scripted Development round.
Creative teams will have the opportunity to create a short, two-page treatment outlining their approach to adapting their chosen book. This treatment is due on 16 November 2020. From these submissions, Screenwest will select up to three teams to receive further development funding for their project.
All program guidelines are to be read in conjunction with the Screenwest Terms of Trade.
