Representing Screen Australia was CEO Graeme Mason, Head of Production Sally Caplan, Head of Audience and Business Richard Harris and from Film Victoria CEO Jenni Tosi, and Head of Screen Industry Programs, Ross Hutchens.
The focus of this In Conversation event was the business of Feature Film development and financing, primarily for narrative projects, although documentary features were also covered.
The discussion examined various elements to consider if you intend to seek development or production funding support from either agency in the coming 12-24 months. Elements for consideration included: genres, budgets, financing, accessing the producer offset and/or investment from Screen Australia and/or Film Victoria, distribution, sales, audience, festivals, co-production considerations and more.
