Story Development: Generate

Through the Screen Story Development Fund, Screen Australia supports screen content makers to take advantage of existing and emerging opportunities to develop compelling scripted stories. Applicants may apply for development funding from one of two strands – The Generate Fund or the Premium Fund.

The Generate Fund is for lower budget long form episodic television and feature film projects with an emphasis on emerging screen content makers.

The Premium Fund, also open for episodic television and feature film projects, is for higher budget long form projects of ambition and scale from successful screen content makers. The commercial viability of the project, and the path to a significant and clearly defined audience is a key focus of this fund.

Online and VR projects are supported through the Online Development Funding Program.


The Story Development Generate Fund provides development funding support for emerging screen content makers to develop bold and distinctive lower budget drama stories for episodic television and feature films.

The Generate Development fund has the following aims:

  • Talent: to identify and support new and emerging talent and their career progression.
  • Story & Audience: to encourage bold and distinctive lower budget drama stories for any platform that can demonstrate a clear pathway to audience.
  • Culture & Diversity: to ensure the storytellers and stories being told reflect gender equity and/or the diversity of people and experiences from around Australia, all of which are important culturally, creatively and economically.
