Strategic Opportunities Program

The Strategic Opportunities Program supports individual initiatives and events that demonstrate long-term benefits to the NSW screen industry.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis at any time during the year, subject to available funds.

To be considered for funding, Project ideas need to be discussed with Screen NSW prior to submission. Please contact our Program Officer via

The objectives of the Program are:

  • to build capacity within the industry and organisations and businesses within the sector;
  • to support new and sustainable partnerships in particular between organisations of State significance and practitioners;
  • to support audience access strategies for projects and practitioners.

Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • the project/event is well planned and of high artistic quality and it has capacity to contribute to the overall stability and strength of the NSW screen industry;
    • the plans for the use of the funding and the amount of other funding;
    • track record of the applicant and partners;
    • the availability of funds.
