Screen Australia may shift funds to development in crisis

Screen Australia signals flexibility if demand shifts, but the major problems are shaping up to be huge.

Screen Australia has posted an update on COVID-19 after a teleconference with other agencies to create a national picture. 

Aside from travel, Screen Australia is processing applications as normal. In addition, ‘Any Screen Australia-funded production that is experiencing delays should reach out to their Investment Manager, or call 1800 213 099 or email to be directed to the appropriate contact. We will of course be flexible wherever possible to support your production.’
