SAFC First Nations Short Film Writers Program – Submissions

February 28

The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) has launched a new short film initiative to advance the careers of South Australian First Nations filmmakers.

Up to six First Nations writers will be selected for the First Nations Short Film Writers’ Program, in which they will work with an experienced script consultant through workshops and mentoring over a six-month period to develop their short film concepts into polished final drafts. Participants will also receive assistance in developing a production budget and schedule.

The developed projects will then be eligible for production funding through phase two of the initiative set to open later this year – the SAFC’s new First Nations Short Film Production Program, which will see teams of First Nations South Australian writers, directors, and producers take their short films into production supervised by an experienced executive producer.
