The Screenrights Cultural Fund makes a difference by supporting people with exciting and innovative new initiatives that foster the creation and appreciation of screen content in Australia and New Zealand.


Screenrights’ 2021 Cultural Fund is now open for applications, closing 5pm AEST Wednesday 28 April. The 2021 focus is New Teams.

“Ours is an industry that thrives on collaboration, and we’re all finding new ways of working together in the time of COVID. The 2021 Cultural Fund focus aims to support projects that bring together new teams: collaborations between people and organisations who have not previously worked together,” says Screenrights Board Director and Chair of the Cultural Fund Working Group, Geoffrey Atherden. “We are particularly interested in innovative projects that unearth new and emerging talent to partner with practitioners who bring experience and expertise. Or, a project might assist individuals or groups from communities who face difficulties in accessing mainstream media and pair them with well-connected partners and their networks.”

  • Apply for up to $50,000
  • 2021 Focus: New Teams
  • 2021 Applications now open

Now in its fourth year, the Fund awards up to $50,000 per initiative, with a total funding pool of $250,000 available in 2021.
