Screenwest is offering up to six places for WA screenwriters, directors and writer-directors to participate in the exclusive MIFF 37º PostScript & Direct networking program within the MIFF 37º South Market.
Selected participants will be given the opportunity to meet, and pitch to, a range of Australian and New Zealand MIFF 37ºSouth Market registered producers.
This year’s 37º South: PostScript&Direct will occur from 1:00pm Sunday, 6 August at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre in Flinders Street.
Screenwest will cover the cost of each participant’s registration fee directly with MIFF, and a set amount of $1,000 in travel funding will be given to each successful participant.
Applicants will be assessed on:
- Their track record;
- The strength of the projects being pitched; and
- The applicant’s current stage of their career and benefits they will gain from this experience.
Screenwriters applying are expected to have a project they are pitching. Directors might not be pitching a specific project – but rather seeking to interest producers in their skills and track record.
To apply for this opportunity, please visit the funding application page where you can download the application form: MIFF 37º South PostScript&Direct – Directors and Screenwriters.
Applications close 5:00pm on Tuesday, 7 June 2017.
