The Western Australian State Government through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development has committed sixteen million dollars over four years to the Western Australian Screen Fund, which will be administered by Screenwest.
FutureNow Board member and Screenwest Head of Strategic Projects and Screen Investment Matt Horrocks stated, “This is a terrific result for the Western Australian screen industry. It will create sustained employment, economic outcomes for the regions and the expansion of the (previous Regional Film Fund) program to cover post-production and visual effects. This is an exceptional development opportunity for the sector.”
The fund supports feature film as well as television production across regional WA.
