An initiative for filmmakers from the LGBTIQ community.
In recognition of the 40th Anniversary of Mardi Gras, Screen Australia and the ABC are calling for proposals from filmmakers from the LGBTIQ community for a new initiative, Love Bites.
Love Bites will be a series of 10 x 5 min documentary short films made by filmmakers from the LGBTIQ community across Australia. The films will premiere on the ABC Arts channel on iview which aims to present smart, quality and shareable arts content.
The successful projects will provide an accessible, engaging and entertaining insight into the lives and interests of the LGBTIQ community.
The content, tone and style of the short film are entirely up the creator, so all interpretations of the medium of documentary are encouraged. All proposals will be assessed against the ABC TV Arts vision statement ‘Where Life and Culture Collide’.
The selected programs will be supported by an ABC digital Arts Commissioning Editor, and a Screen Australia Investment Development Manager.
