In response to the change in the global screen content creation and distribution landscape, Screenwest has updated its Scripted Development Funding initiatives and will accept applications for scripted features or series for all delivery platforms, including theatrical, television broadcast and digital streaming.
The sleek, restructured initiative will provide funding for concept or project development to emerging and experienced Western Australian screen practitioners to develop high quality, distinctive projects that can reach a target audience and attract further investment or market partners.
It is anticipated that two intakes will be offered within the 2020-21 financial year, including this intake, with the second to open in early February 2021.
How to Apply
The full guidelines, application materials and eligibility criteria are available on the Development page of the Screenwest website.
All program guidelines are to be read in conjunction with the Screenwest Terms of Trade.
Once the applicant has applied, an automated application receipt will be sent to the applicant through SmartyGrants. If this receipt has not been received within two working days of submission, it is the applicant’s responsibility to contact Screenwest to follow up.
Applications open through the Screenwest SmartyGrants portal on Monday, 27 July 2020 and close Monday, 7 September 2020 at 5:00pm AWST.
