New initiative helps Indigenous filmmakers shine
Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department is pleased to announce the first call out for the Indigenous Feature Documentary Initiative. In partnership with the Adelaide Film Festival, KOJO and the National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) this initiative is the first of its kind. Established Indigenous filmmakers, with a production-ready project, will have the chance to make a feature-length documentary that will premiere at the 2017 Adelaide Film Festival.
The initiative seeks documentaries with innovative observational and/or social justice themes with a strong creative vision such as The Tall Man (2011 Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund) or the 2014 Sundance Grand Jury Prize–winner, Rich Hill.
This is a rare opportunity for an Indigenous feature documentary to receive up to $738,000 in funding, which includes:
• $600,000 combined funding from Screen Australia and the Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund.
• In-kind post-production support from KOJO up to the value of $78,000
• Access to the NFSA archives to the value of $60,000.
