Screen Innovation Fund
The Screen Innovation Fund is a one off initiative that provides the Tasmanian screen industry with $2 million of extra funding from July 2018 until Jun 2021.
The funding will be available via:
- The Production Investment program which will distribute most of the funds and is aimed at enabling investment in projects of state significance.
- The Proof-of-concept Production program will distribute funding to develop a project and to undertake production of proof of concept, such as a sizzle-reel, short version of a long-form piece, or test footage specifically to attract marketplace support in the next stage.
- New Initiatives or opportunities that arise, will be able to apply for if they are likely to result in production of innovative content with an opportunity to connect with the market and with audiences.
In July 2018 the Minister for the Arts announced the first of these initiatives. A cooperative short form factual initiative between SBS and Screen Tasmania. Details are available at this page.
