21 February, 2014 by IF


Screen NSW has announced that applications will open February 24th 2014 for a new round of the Emerging Filmmakers Fund (EFF).


The Emerging Filmmakers Fund, run by Screen NSW, supports the career development of talented emerging filmmakers in NSW by funding the production and post-production of short films.

There is one round of EFF a year and, in 2014-15, funding will be provided for up to three projects, with grants of up to $30,000 for production and/or post-production.

Projects can be drama, factual, animation, experimental, or online/transmedia, and must be a maximum of 30 minutes in length.

Screen NSW is pleased to announce Causeway Films will take on the role of EFF Executive Producer for the 2014-15 round. Causeway Films is a partnership between Kristina Ceyton, who produced The Babadook (selected for Sundance 2014) and The Ground Beneath (short-listed for the Academy Awards and winner of the Rouben Mamoulian Dendy Award), and respected developer Sam Jennings whose short Deluge won the Grand Jury Prix at Clermont-Ferrand.

Applications for EFF will close at COB on 28 April 2014.

Successful teams will be announced in July 2014.
