2022 AACTA Pitch: Regional Landscapes

March 10, 2022

Entries are now open for the 2022 AACTA Pitch: Regional Landscapes.

Delivered in partnership with Screenworks, the development initiative gives aspiring Australian creatives the chance to pitch their ideas to key industry figures and receive development funding and support to take their concept to market.

This year’s winner will be flown to New York to take part in the Australian International Screen Forum (AISF), where they will have the opportunity to network in an exclusive setting with US-based producers, studio executives, and other key decision makers as part of the multi-day film festival and industry conference at Lincoln Center.

The event is planned to be held in the last three months of the year, returning as an in-person format for the first time since 2019, with dates to be announced soon.

They will also be provided with industry connection opportunities through the Australian Writers’ Guild Pathways program; professional script development sessions; invaluable feedback and ongoing guidance from the esteemed judging panel; three-day pass to all sessions at the Screenworks 2022 Regional to Global Screen Forum to be held in May; AACTA, Screenworks and Australian Writers’ Guild annual memberships; and two tickets to the 2022 AACTA Award Ceremony.

AACTA encourages new, emerging, or experienced creatives to apply, particularly those from diverse and under-represented backgrounds.

Initial entry requirements include title, logline, a 1000-word treatment, and the first 5 pages of the screenplay.

A panel of judges will be announced later this month and includes prominent Australian screen decision-makers across streaming, production, and distribution.
