Screenrights launches 2021 Cultural Fund with ‘New Teams’ focus

Screenrights is inviting applications for its 2021 Cultural Fund, which this year has the theme of ‘New Teams’.

Designed to foster the creation of screen content in Australia and New Zealand, the Fund awards up to $50,000 per initiative, with a total funding pool of $250,000 available this year.

Screenrights awarded three projects in 2018, four projects in 2019, and a record seven projects in 2020.

Screenrights board director and chair of the cultural fund working group Geoffrey Atherden says the fourth iteration of the initiative is about bringing together people and organisations that have not previously worked together. “Ours is an industry that thrives on collaboration, and we’re all finding new ways of working together in the time of COVID,” he says. “The 2021 Cultural Fund focus aims to support projects that bring together new teams.

Applications for the 2021 Screenrights Cultural Fund will close Wednesday April 28 5pm AEST.
