SEED: Regional Shorts

Screen NSW has launched a new initiative to unearth filmmaking talent and content creators from regional NSW.
A partnership between ABC Regional and Screen NSW, SEED: Regional Shorts offers ten emerging creative teams grants of up to $4,000 each to create a short-form production.
Teams will be supported by a Screen NSW Development and Production executive, independent screen industry figures, and local ABC Regional producers, who will offer production advice and feedback on the projects to the teams. There is also scope for ABC Regional facilities and equipment to be made available to the ten teams.
The finished projects will screen to a wide audience on ABC online platforms, which in 2015 had 7.4 million users per week
Applications are currently closed, with further announcements expected to be made late in 2017.
Guidelines are available below for your information. For the latest announcements it’s best to subscribe to our eNews and follow us on social media. When new program information is ready it will be announced on those platforms first.

SEED is intended as a program for first time filmmakers. The grant of $4,000 is intended as seed funding, to support emerging filmmakers to leverage other funds and resources to make a short form project.
