Screen Queensland commits over $142,000 to assorted programs

Screen Queensland has today announced an injection of over $142,000 in funds to fuel the development of a number of projects.

Screen Queensland CEO, Bryan Lowe, made the announcement this morning and said both television and feature film projects would be supported as well as the short film festival SIPFEST.

“We are excited to be funding new television concepts from leading Queensland production companies Hoodlum Active and Wild Fury as well as a second series of Jonathan M Shiff’s Reef Doctors,” he said.

“Hoodlum are a ground breaking EMMY, BAFTA and LOGIE award-winning team who have found innovative ways to engage global audiences across multiple platforms and are now active in drama production.

“We have also been active in supporting feature film development, including a romantic comedy Music of My Life about a couple looking for love in all the wrong songs, and Help a voyeuristic thriller,” he said.
