Changes to online documentary funding

From 1 July 2021, documentary projects that have a primary release on a social media platform will be able to apply for funding via Screen Australia’s Online Production fund.

Through the Online Production program Screen Australia invests in the production of scripted, children’s and documentary projects that take risks and push the envelope of storytelling. Up to $500,000 is available for each project.

Applicants with documentary projects designed for release on other platforms, including on SVOD services, should continue to apply through the Documentary funding programs.

Please speak to an Investment Manager in either department if you are unsure which funding program you are eligible for.
