Screen Australia is the Australian Federal Government agency charged with supporting Australian screen content through development, production and promotion across television, film, documentary and digital originals. The agency administers Australia’s official co-production program, in addition to the Producer Offset tax rebate which assists eligible television, film and online works to be made. I.C.E. is continuing the partnership that began in 2016 with Screen Australia to offer free face-to-face meetings with Screen Australia staff at I.C.E. in Parramatta. If you’re a professional or emerging screenwriter, producer or filmmaker working in Western Sydney, you can book a meeting with Screen Australia staff, to build relationships with the agency, get first-hand advice about your projects in development and find out about their funding opportunities and pathways.
