NSW ramps up screen funding by $20M per year

With stimulus funding flying around, NSW pumps a substantial swag of new money into the screen sector.

As the release says, ‘The NSW Government has announced $175 million investment for screen production through the Made in NSW fund, which will support high-end screen productions in NSW, creating jobs, and significantly contributing to the State’s economy.’

A bit of digging reveals a much more interesting story. That $175 million is actually over five years, providing $35m/year from 2020-21 to 2024-25.
