Next Step 2015 - Closed

As the name suggests, a Next Step will film provides the filmmakers with the final ‘stepping-stone’ they need to produce a quality short film – from pitch to screen – in a fully mentored production environment. Hopefully the filmmakers can then move forward with their career and independently engage with the mainstream industry (working with the SAFC, Screen Australia, broadcasters, sales agents, distributors, private investors, etc).

This year an industry assessment committee will support ONE project for script development and a production investment of $15,000 cash. The successful applicants will also receive $7,500 in-kind equipment hire from the Media Resource Centre.

It is hoped that producing a Next Step film will provide the successful filmmakers with the final ‘step up’ they need to apply to the SAFC’s Short Film Fund.

DEADLINE: MON 10 AUG
