PEP 2022/23 Funding Expended

Screen Australia will cease accepting applications for the Producer Equity Program (PEP) for the remainder of the 2022/23 financial year, effective 5pm AEST Thursday 27 April 2023.

Unlike the Producer Offset which is funded by the Australian Tax Office, PEP is fully funded from Screen Australia’s budget.

“Balancing available funds with demand across all documentary programs is always challenging. Unfortunately we don’t have the  resources to continue to meet the demand for the Producer Equity Program this financial year. We understand this delay may be inconvenient and appreciate the patience of the industry.

As the PEP budget has been fully allocated, allowing applications to be processed until the end of June 2023 would impact the funds available through the Producer, Commissioned and Development documentary programs. The pause on PEP application processing will not impact Screen Australia’s total 2022/23 documentary investment,” said Screen Australia’s Head of Documentary Alex West.

Screen Australia will accept new PEP applications after 1 July 2023. The agency is considering how PEP will operate in the new financial year and more details will be released in the coming months.
