Screenrights’ inaugural 2018 Cultural Fund recipients are on track with their incredible initiatives, and we’re pleased to share the following updates on their progress.
Taz Miller and the Sharing Stories Foundation sent us some images from their interactive app project, which aims to increase access for culturally significant Indigenous material in schools:
Paaktantji and Mutthi Mutthi custodians filming Welcome to Country at Lake Mungo. Screen media which will be available through new education app, ‘Leave it There for The Next Little Fellas’.
“We’ve been through a number of designs that will work for all forms, and have landed on this simple and clean layout.
“Next steps are to create a complete prototype film selection interface like those of Netflix, YouTube etc. but in a way that again works for our needs. Our SDKs (Software Development Kit) is almost complete too, meaning we can pass on code to third party developers to adapt their apps for the likes of eye-control.”

We can’t wait to hear more about the projects as they develop further, and to see what applications come in this year.
The 2019 Screenrights Cultural Fund is now open for applications, and closes at 5pm AEST Friday 17 May.
