Roundtables

Ready, Steady, Pitch!

Mark and Eddie are seeking the following pitches:

  • Films that fit the Premiere Fund branding of “Stories that need telling”.
  • Feature-length narrative drama intended for theatrical release; examples include: Acute Misfortune, Balibo, Bran Nue Dae, Blessed, Downriver, Paper Planes, These Final Hours and The Turning.
  • Feature-length documentary intended for theatrical release; examples include: Bastardy, The Coming Back Out Ball Movie, The Family, The Eulogy, Not Quite Hollywood, Putuparri & The Rainmakers, The Songkeepers and Westwind.
  • Special interest in content that is Indigenous-themed
  • Special interest in films from Accelerator Lab alumni
  • The more connections to Victoria that the proposal has the better, but at a minimum projects must include a Victorian-based producer and the Victorian spend for project is required to be several times greater than the amount sought from the Premiere Fund.

NOT SEEKING

  • Anything under 80 minutes duration
  • Anything without some connection to Victoria
  • Anything without Victorian spend
