The subjects covered in the latest round of funded documentaries ranges from koorioke to fungi to social justice.

Screen Australia’s Head of Content Sally Caplan celebrated the diversity of the funded projects, saying they would ‘shine a light on issues including mental health and wellbeing, racism and the natural environment, and are sure to spark conversations.’

There are two projects funded through Screen Australia’s commissioned Program; Could You Survive on the Breadline? is a three-part documentary series for SBS that follows three Australians as they experience what it’s like to live with financial disadvantage. Another SBS program, Every Family Has A Secret, gained funding for its third season.
