Screen Territory 2017-18 Round 3 Grants Open

Round Three will be specifically assessing applications for both story development and production finance.
Story development programs aim to help NT screen practitioners demonstrate their talent and build their capacity by supporting the development of distinctive Territory screen stories that are capable of reaching and engaging audiences.
The story development program structure includes;
– up to $5000 for seed development for emerging NT practitioners, and
– up to $20,000 in project development for experienced NT resident producers, writers and directors.
Production finance includes Screen Territory contributing to the production finance of screen projects which feature significant Northern Territory content in order to build the capacity of the Territory industry as well as raise the profile of the Territory and Territory storytelling.
Base funding of up to $20,000 or up to 10 per cent of the projects expenditure in the NT is available.
In addition there is a call for nominations for the annual Bob Plasto Screen Award. The Bob Plasto Screen Award honours the achievements of a Territorian who has made an outstanding contribution to the screen industry in the Northern Territory.
The nominated person will have achieved outstanding success, critical acclaim on single or multiple productions, in any crew or support role, or provided significant support to the industry over time.
The Award is named in honour of the late Bob Plasto who made 75 documentaries in his distinguished career.
