Screen Australia is the Federal Government agency charged with supporting Australian screen development, production and promotion. They fund the production of everything from features to documentaries, television drama, children’s programs and online web series.
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.
“Screen Australia is committed to telling Australian stories and that means ensuring all Australians are represented on screen. Having a Hot Desk at I.C.E. gives us a way of meeting emerging talent through an organisation that is itself a creative hub in the heart in one of the most culturally diverse places in Australia.”
