Screen Australia offers funds for the development, production and marketing of Australian screen content, as well as for the development of Australian talent and screen production businesses.

Project funding is generally provided to professional practitioners with some level of industry experience, depending on the program. For most production investment, a distributor or broadcaster usually needs to be on board as well.
