Due to significant industry need, Screenwest is opening new Scripted, Footloose and Documentary Production Funding Rounds. Applications close Monday, 23 November 2020 at 5:00pm AWST.

Screenwest had previously communicated that we expected a second Documentary Production round to close in January 2021 and budget allowing, a third round in May 2021.
