Talent Camp is an initiative by the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), supported by Screen Australia, South Australian Film Corporation, Screen Tasmania, Film Victoria, Screen NSW and Screen Queensland.
Talent Camp is an exciting skills development program open to emerging storytellers and screen content creatives from diverse backgrounds across five states. In 2022 the project will take place in two parts. Part one will be centred on narrative screenwriting, producing and directing for comedy and drama, and part two on documentary directing and producing.
Following the completion of the national programs, Talent Camp will fund one narrative and one documentary short formwork, whether a short film, pilot episode or proof of concept, with $20,000 allocated for a comedy/drama production and $15,000 for documentary production.
Applications are now welcome from creatives from under-represented communities concerning the cultural background, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic and/ or socio-economic circumstances. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives are strongly encouraged to apply.
The week-long workshops are free, and regional participants will receive financial support for travel and accommodation.
Applications close 5 December, 2021.
