Film Vic announces extra production funding for games

The changes include raising production funding to $300k per project, and waiving applications fees until July 2021.

Film Victoria have announced some changes to their games program, including providing more production funding for videogame development. 

Until July 2021, videogame developers will be able to apply for production funding for three different stages of videogame development. They can apply for up to $80k to develop a prototype, which demonstrates the core features of a game in development, or up to $150k to develop a ‘vertical slice’, a short segment of the game that provides an accurate and polished demonstration of the finished game.
