Screenwest’s Elevate initiative to support 2017 productions

Filmmakers have until July 10 to submit their projects for Screenwest’s short film and web series initiative, Elevate. 

Elevate provides support for the development and production of scripted short films and web series. The initiative is designed to develop creative and technical filmmaking skills as well as provide a calling-card for early to mid-career Western Australian filmmakers. Elevate is multi-phased, involving high-level script and project development prior to moving into production.

The program consists of two strands, Elevate30 and Elevate70, and looks to support up to six productions in 2017, two of which will go towards Indigenous filmmakers.

ELEVATE30 is available for filmmakers that have completed at least one quality short-form project and is for projects from 5-10mins in duration. Up to $30,000 is available through this strand.

ELEVATE70 is available for more advanced filmmakers with a solid track-record in short-form filmmaking (or equivalent). Elevate70 is intended for projects between 10-15 minutes in duration and up to $70,000 is available for these productions.
