More than $80,000 has been provided to nine screen-based artists through the 2014 ACT Screen Arts Fund, ACT Minister for the Arts Joy Burch said today.
“The ACT Screen Arts Fund provides opportunities for the ACT community to access funding for film and screen projects,” Ms Burch said.
“It supports a range of screen activities including short film, documentaries, feature film scripts and television.”
Well known filmmaker and former owner of Electric Shadows cinemas, Andrew Pike will receive funding to make a documentary on his family heritage and Canberra filmmaker Daniel Sanguineti will be mentored on his first feature film Me and My Mates vs the Zombie Apocalpyse.
Other projects to receive funding include Clare Young for her first feature drama script “Unruly Girls”, Humphrey James for working with a script editor on his TV series Un-Real Estate and Vanessa Gazy for her short film “Highway”.
