Screen Australia revises documentary programs

After reviewing its guidelines in late 2009, Screen Australia is now revising guidelines for its Development, Production Financing, Indigenous and Marketing Support programs, effective immediately. The revisions for documentaries, which include those funded through the Indigenous department, are part of the recent announcement of Screen Australia's funding of $200,000 and under provided as a grant, rather than a recoupable investment. These revisions are the result of the direct consultations between Screen Australia and stakeholder groups, as well as submissions from individual companies.
