First Facts: First Nations Factual Showcase – Submissions

March 23, 2023

Applications are now open for First Facts: First Nations Factual Showcase, a new initiative from Network 10 and Screen Australia’s First Nations department in which a collection of short documentaries from First Nations filmmakers will screen on 10 Play and Network 10’s social media channels.

As part of the program, eight to 10 teams featuring a writer, director, and producer will receive $5,000 of development funding and the chance to hone their project at a three-day workshop in Sydney in June.

Following the workshop, each team will pitch their project to a panel of industry professionals. Six teams will then be selected to receive up to $70,000 of production funding to make their 10-minute documentary for Network 10.

To be eligible, the writing and directing roles must be held by applicants who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and the project idea needs to be conceived by a First Nations person. Writers and directors must also be available to attend the workshop from June 14 – 16.

First Facts is supported by Screen NSW, Screen Queensland, Screen Tasmania, Screen Territory, Screenwest, the South Australian Film Corporation, and VicScreen.

Applications are now open and close at 5pm AEDT Thursday, March 23.
