The Screenrights Cultural Fund makes a difference by supporting people with exciting and innovative new initiatives that foster the creation and appreciation of screen content in Australia and New Zealand.

Focus 2020: New Voices

Screenrights’ 2020 Cultural Fund has now closed, and the successful applicants have been announced. This year’s focus is New Voices – find out more about the 2020 recipients here.

“Our 2020 focus on ‘New Voices’ is about advancing those who, for whatever reason, have found doors not readily open to them,” said James Dickinson, Screenrights’ Chief Executive. “That might be due to their living in a remote location, or because of a language barrier, a social, economic or accessibility disadvantage or a lack of confidence that anyone will back their project. We’re excited to see how this year’s applicants will address these obstacles in their initiatives.”

The Fund awards up to $50,000 per initiative. Find out more about the initiatives supported by the 2019 fund here.

2020 applications closed at 5pm AEST on Wednesday 29 April, and the successful recipients were announced on Thursday 6 August.
