The Screen NSW Pathways Development Program supports the continuation of a career in screen for creatives with disability. This initiative is open to emerging creatives with disability who may not meet the guidelines for theĀ Screen NSW Development program. Screen NSW strongly encourages past recipients of the Screenability Film Fund to apply.

The opportunity is to support three projects conceived by creatives with disability to develop a long form project. This could be an adaptation of their Screenability short film into a feature or series or the development of an entirely new series or feature film of fiction or non-fiction. The format can include live action and animation and there is no restriction on subject matter or style, but Screen NSW is looking for a one-page synopsis that is compelling, distinctive and has a strong sense of their audience.

In addition to people with disability, Screen NSW is committed to supporting increased participation in the industry of people from other underrepresented groups including:

  • Regional NSW
  • Western Sydney
  • First Nations people
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • LGBTQIA+ people.

The initiative will identify and track NSW screen talent and invest in developing and establishing their strong and distinctive creative voices by enabling them to develop an idea from a one-page synopsis to a series bible for a series, a comprehensive pitch deck and treatment for a factual project or a treatment for a feature film. The aim is to support a team to develop material that is ready to pitch and to leverage further development support or secure marketplace finance.

The initiative encourages creatives to build networks and relationships with experienced practitioners, as well as with experienced industry professionals through the development of the project
