Indigenous film support
Metro Screen is offering scholarships where indigenous people in NSW over 18 years will have the opportunity to enrol in film, TV, video and screen training courses, to a maximum value of $1000.
To apply for the scholarship you need to complete an application form identifying the course you wish to study and the reasons for selecting the course.
Metro Screen also offers mentorships through the Lester Bostock Scheme. The scheme is calling for applicants who want to turn their idea into a five-minute film.
Successful applicants will have their equipment, facilities hire, stock and post-production costs covered, and will be provided with a $2000 budget to cover crew and cast fees, plus design and catering.
In addition, each filmmaker will be matched up with an industry mentor to help guide them through the process.
To apply youll need to complete a Lester Bostock Scheme application form.
The application deadline is Friday, February 2, at 5pm.
