  • Incubator Event Fund – supports the establishment of new events (see terms and conditions).
  • Flagship Event Fund –  supports the marketing of emerging events to increase their profile and encourage visitation (see terms and conditions).
  • Event Development Fund – supports the strategic development of proven flagship events as drivers of tourism (see terms and conditions).

Eligibility conditions and assessment criteria unique to each of the three funds within the Regional Flagship Events Program are detailed in their terms and conditions. It is recommended that prospective applicants thoroughly read the terms and conditions before applying.

The Screenability NSW Internship Program is a training and paid internship program for people with a disability, who are seeking employment in the film and television industry. The Program features training followed by internships on some of Australia’s most-watched “event” TV shows and highly-anticipated feature films, working with Australia’s leading production companies, broadcasters and streaming services.

The program will create opportunities for people in the technical and creative areas of screen production, including set building, art dept, camera and sound depts, make up and wardrobe, along with writing, producing, admin and production roles, plus editing, sound design, VFX, composing and many more.

Internships, attachments and industry placements for emerging practitioners are well-established pathways to employment in the screen sector and we consider this program a critical first step towards working with the NSW government and the screen industry to deliver longer term job placements in the screen production sector.

  3. Skills, knowledge, and networks needed to prepare and recover from natural disasters: ensure that communities impacted by natural disasters can access support for community-led recovery when they are ready, and for projects that will facilitate their recovery.
