Screen Australia and Australians in Film’s Talent Gateway program and the Global Producers Exchange: Submissions
May 12 @ 5:00 pm
Screen Australia and Australians in Film (AiF) have announced the return of the Talent Gateway program and the Global Producers Exchange, two initiatives designed for creatives to expand their skills so they may have a greater chance of success in the global market.
Talent Gateway provides screenwriters and directors who have had some success either internationally or in Australia, with the skills, knowledge, access, and relationships necessary to succeed further internationally.
Up to six delegates will be selected to participate in the bespoke program which will include roundtables, masterclasses, introductions with key US-based screen decision-makers and individualised mentorships. Each delegate will receive grants of up to $20,000 to enable them to take part in the program which will run from November 2022 to June 2023. Funding will also be used to develop, refine and market the IP on their slate that receives any positive interest, to quickly engage international partners for their careers and projects.

The Global Producers Exchange provides Australia’s leading scripted producers the skills, knowledge, access, and relationships necessary to succeed in the global market and to attract foreign investment and marketplace partnerships for Australian scripted content. The exchange aims to give Australian IP and cultural stories the opportunity to be developed with internationally based collaborators who possess a global outlook and a proven track record of success with international audiences and to help position projects for success in the global market.
Up to six production companies/producers will be selected to participate in this scripted development lab that features a series of roundtables and masterclasses with key US-based screen decision-makers, and 1:1 mentorships. Each of the six participants will receive grants of up to $60,000 to enable them to take part in the program which will run from October 2022 to June 2023. Funding will also be used to work with writers and directors to quickly develop, refine and market the scripted projects on the participant’s slate based on feedback and positive interest from mentors and US executives throughout the program. The Exchange will culminate in a two-day market where participants will meet with and pitch projects to an individually curated group of high-level US industry executives, including production companies, studios, financiers, distributors, broadcasters and streamers, in order to attract international partners and investment for their slates. Find further details, eligibility requirements and information on how to apply here.
Applications for both programs close at 5pm AEST on Thursday, May 12.
