Screen Australia’s Short Film Completion Fund provides finance for distinctive and creatively ambitious short drama films that show outstanding potential but lack the funds to finish. Screen Australia is committed to galvanising the connection between short drama filmmaking and a feature film career. We will favour the completion of shorts that have a clear professional development benefit and stand to showcase talent at local and international film festivals, as well as act as a ‘calling card’ to promote longer-form opportunities for directors, writers and producers. The Completion Fund will seek to target outstanding talent on a strong trajectory towards making their first professional feature film. Successful recipients of the Short Film Completion Fund will be expected to deliver their completed short drama to Screen Australia within four months of contracting.
A maximum of $40,000 is available per project.
