Raw Nerve 2015 - CLOSED

Now in its 14th year, Raw Nerve is a joint initiative of Screen Australia and Screen Network designed to showcase the nation’s emerging filmmaking talent.

Raw Nerve provides MRC entry-level filmmakers with the training, mentors, resources and financial assistance to make their first low budget short film in a real industry environment.

The program spans the complete filmmaking process from concept and script development though to post-production and marketing.

The MRC encourages filmmaking teams with proven collaborative experience to apply. All writers MUST already have a producer attached in order to be eligible.

This year an industry-led assessment committee will select THREE 7 minute projects to receive production investment of $4000 plus $2,500 in-kind equipment support from the MRC.

The MRC will also attach a professional industry mentor to each successful project.

This year’s theme is ONE NIGHT.

It is anticipated that the finished films will get the opportunity to be broadcast on ABC2 in 2016
