Screenwest in conjunction with NITV and the Western Australian Department of Aboriginal Affairs (DAA) will fund a one-off half hour documentary bringing to the national screen an important social and cultural impact project that will explore subject matter including indigenous art, art practice, law enforcement and reconciliation.
‘This is a great opportunity for talented West Australian Indigenous film makers to work with Indigenous artists on an important reconciliation project, and that is why NITV supports this Initiative,’ said Tanya Orman, Channel Manager, NITV.
We are looking for a passionate Indigenous filmmaker to team up with a producer (with prior factual producing credits) to develop and produce the half-hour documentary.
The successful applicant team will receive up to $80,000 to develop and produce the 1x 30 minute documentary for broadcast on NITV in 2018. The filmmaking team must be available to shoot during NAIDOC week 2017 and intermittently between July and September to deliver by the end of 2017.
Submissions are open now for teams to put themselves forward to cover the unique WA project. Applications close at 5pm on Friday 12 May 2017.
