NSW-based filmmakers with a disability can apply for funding for through a new Screenability Filmmakers Fund.
The fund from Create NSW which will support three individual projects with $30,000 as well as appoint an Executive Producer to each production.
Applications are sought from projects that appeal to a broad audience (with or without disability content), with at least one key creative (writer, director or producer) identifying as having disability.
Create NSW CEO Michael Brealey said, “Since launching last year, Screenability NSW has helped seven screen practitioners with disability undertake placements with companies including Animal Logic, the Nine Network’s The Footy Show and Matchbox Pictures, and the Sydney Film Festival Screenability films have screened to sold-out audiences.
“We’re excited about extending the program to support the pool of talented, committed and professional practitioners with disability keen to expand their skills as filmmakers with this new fund, and look forward to receiving the entries in the coming month.”
