2013 HIVE Production Fund



If you’re an artistic filmmaker who’s ears buzz when you hear words like audacious, bold and original, then you’re ready for The Hive.

The HIVE Production Fund is inspired by the HIVE Lab, an event which brings filmmakers and artists together in a creative clash of cultures. The $800,000 HIVE Production Fund supports a wide range of artists and currently seeks ambitious arts projects :

It is now in its second year, as an initiative of the Adelaide Film Festival, in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts, Screen Australia and ABC Arts.

Head of ABC Arts, Katrina Sedgwick said, “The HIVE Production Fund provides artists and filmmakers a rare opportunity to create art/film work for the big and small screen and to support new creative collaborations. ABC TV is delighted to be a part of this ground breaking initiative again.”

Successful projects will premiere at the 2015 Adelaide Film Festival, and will screen on ABC Television.


Last year’s inaugural HIVE Production Fund supported three bold projects:

TENDER: a documentary from Director Lynette Wallworth  (visual artist) and Producer Kath Shelper (Samson and Delilah)

I WANT TO DANCE BETTER AT PARTIES: from Directors Gideon Obazarnek (ex Chunky Move Artistic Director) and Matthew Bate (Shut Up Little Man)

THE BOY CASTAWAYS: a rock musical dramatic feature film from Director Michael Kantor (Ex Malthouse Theatre Artistic Director), Producer Jo Dyer (Lucky Miles and Ex Sydney Theatre Company EP), Producer Stephen Armstrong (Ex Malthouse EP) and Executive Producer Robert Connolly (Underground: The Julian Assange Story, The Boys).
