AACTA Pitch: Regional Landscapes – Submissions

January 9, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

AACTA Pitch: Regional Landscapes is back for another year, giving aspiring Australian creatives the chance to develop a feature film that celebrates the idiosyncratically Australian stories inspired by our regional areas.

Delivered in partnership with Screenworks, the initiative is for teams of up to three creatives, with at least one required to be based in regional Australia.

A shortlist will be guided through multiple rounds of development with 5 finalists to receive an exclusive training session on developing and finessing industry standard pitch materials, including a pitch deck and sizzle reel and will also undertake one-on-one mentoring from this year’s panel of judges.

The final will be presented as part of 2023 Screenworks Regional to Global Screen Forum, a hybrid event to run from Thursday, March 30 to April 1, 2023.

The recipient of the 2023 AACTA Pitch: Regional Landscapes in partnership with Screenworks initiative will be provided:
• Support to develop their concept into a production
• $5,000 in prize money, consisting of a $1,000 cash prize and $4,000 towards development, industry introductions, and networking
• Industry connection opportunities through the Australian Writers’ Guild Pathways program
• Professional script development sessions
• Feedback and ongoing guidance from the esteemed judging panel
• Three-day pass to all sessions at the Screenworks 2023 Regional to Global Screen Forum to be held in March
