We are looking for pitches that grab our attention, that evidence a story concept that will generate and sustain the dramatic structure of a feature film, online and interactive drama, or virtual reality drama installation, and one that knows its audience.
Pitches will be confidentially viewed by Screen Australia personnel and/or industry specialists as required and some teams may be invited to apply for Story Development funding. The intention of this pitch is to provide a virtual open door to talented storytellers to be eligible for story funding.
Given the magnitude of submissions we do not have the resources to provide feedback. We will advise whether or not an invitation to apply for funding will be afforded within approximately six weeks of receiving your pitch.
Wildcard pitch submissions that are invited to apply for Story Development funding will be evaluated competitively against our story development assessment criteria.
