- This new program supports early and mid-career Victorian screen practitioners to gain international experience, develop craft and technical skills, build networks and increase expertise.
- Victorian screen practitioners can apply for a grant to undertake a short-term fellowship with a screen production entity in North America, the United Kingdom or India.
- The grant is to be used for accommodation, living, travel and associated legal costs incurred by the practitioner for the duration of their fellowship.
- There are two fellowship strands available:
- Brokered by Film Victoria – practitioners can apply for an advertised fellowship opportunity brokered by us with a host company in North America, the United Kingdom or India.
- Self brokered – practitioners broker their own fellowship opportunity with a production entity in North America, the United Kingdom or India and apply to us for funding support.
We’re committed to supporting Victorian Indigenous screen practitioners. Our Indigenous Initiatives page has more information on opportunities available in 2012/13.
