Activity: the expansion of Bus Stop Films’ (BSF) award-winning Accessible Film Studies Program to Queensland, Victoria and South Australia. It will see access to film school education, filmmaking opportunities and screen industry employment pathways open for up to 45 young adults living with disabilities in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide. Additionally, the delivery of the Program will see creation of at least nine new jobs by employing emerging filmmakers from diverse backgrounds to deliver the Program, and who’ll also gain above the line credits in BSF’s productions, furthering the Organisation’s contribution to diversity in the screen industry ecosystem.
December 2021 Update: The program expansion has added at least 12 more new jobs for emerging filmmakers in three states, plus opened up film studies education to close to 60 young adults with disability through partnerships with Griffith Film School, RMIT University and UniSA. All three locations will open in 2022 as planned.
