RMIT’s AFI Research Collection, in partnership with RMIT Culture, and the Screen and Sound Cultures Research Group at RMIT University, is pleased to announce the 2021 AFI Research Collection Research Fellowship.
The Fellowship will provide a stipend of $5000 (AUD).
The AFI Research Collection (AFIRC) at RMIT invites proposals from scholars around Australia wishing to undertake research that utilises the Collection’s resources and promotes the AFIRC through a published outcome. The Fellowship is designed to showcase the unique holdings of the AFIRC, which include film stills, newspaper clippings and other significant artefacts from the Australian film and television industry and beyond.
The appointed Fellow will have access to the Collection under the guidance of the AFIRC staff.
The Fellowship will provide a stipend of $5000 (AUD) which includes travel costs if the recipient is not from Melbourne.
The Fellow will be required to participate in an accessible public event that engages on a topic related to their work. This could be in the form of an informal In-Conversation, or a panel style event and will be facilitated by RMIT Culture.
The AFI Research Collection at RMIT is a specialist film and television industry research library open to the public. The Collection houses unique materials not available for film scholarship elsewhere and a range of books, journals, scripts, directories, publicity materials, production stills, reports, posters, and festival catalogues. It is particularly strong in screen history, theory, and Australian cinema and television.
