Screen Australia’s Documentary Development program assists experienced documentary makers to achieve planned outcomes for the development of their projects.
This could include further research, writing the next draft of a script or treatment, strategic shooting and/or editing to attract marketplace development or production finance, or compiling a sizzle reel.
The program is primarily focused on providing development support to one-off and series documentary.
Interactive or online projects: Producers of interactive or online projects must discuss their project with an Investment/Development Manager to explore what development may be possible, before applying for development funding.
Screen Australia does not invest in programs such as reality or magazine television, light entertainment, panel or travel shows, infotainment, current affairs, cooking, ‘how to’, sports, corporate, training, games, extensions to film or TV, or community access programs or projects whose primary market is the education sector.
