Out Now is the first Australian scripted funding initiative open exclusively to LGBTQIA+ web series proposals.

Six applications will be shortlisted and receive $2,000 in development funding. These six shortlisted teams will then take part in a series of development workshops to get their projects in the best shape possible to apply for production funding.
How to Apply
The full guidelines, application materials and eligibility criteria are available on the Production Funding page of the Screenwest website.
All program guidelines are to be read in conjunction with the Screenwest Terms of Trade.
Applications will be accepted through the Screenwest SmartyGrants Portal.
