Budding filmmakers sought


Screen NSW and ABC Regional to unearth new talent from regional NSW

Screen NSW has launched a new initiative to unearth filmmaking talent and content creators from regional NSW.

A partnership between ABC Regional and Screen NSW, SEED: REGIONAL SHORTS offers ten emerging creative teams grants of up to $4,000 each to create a short-form production.

Teams will be supported by a Screen NSW Development and Production executive, independent screen industry figures, and local ABC Regional producers, who will offer production advice and feedback on the projects to the teams. There is also scope for ABC Regional facilities and equipment to be made available to the ten teams.

The finished projects will screen to a wide audience on ABC online platforms, which in 2015 had 7.4 million users per week.

SEED is designed for early career creatives, aged over 18, based in regional NSW. Applicants with feature film or television credits in their elected role are not eligible. There must be at least one woman in a key creative role.

Narrative short film projects of up to 10 minutes duration (drama, documentary, animation and experimental projects) for online or small screen delivery (webisode series, transmedia, interactive, online documentary and mobile/tablet content) will be considered.

Applications for SEED: Regional Shorts are open from Thursday 27th October 2016 until Sunday 8th January, 2017.
