Deutsche Bank Fellowship For First Nations Film Creatives
Submissions are now open for the Deutsche Bank Fellowship, a new grant for Australian First Nations film creatives launched by Sydney Film Festival and Deutsche Bank.
The winning Fellow will be awarded a $20,000 grant to further develop their skills through professional development, industry placement, or other opportunities including international placement when possible.
The Fellowship is an important investment in developing and nurturing the talents of local creatives and enhancing global awareness of Australia’s vibrant First Nations filmmaking talent.
Sydney Film Festival encourages all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander film creatives who have already started a career in any discipline within the film and television industry, and who are currently based in Australia, to apply.
Applications are welcomed from eligible craftspersons, screenwriters, producers, directors and actors with a proven track record in their chosen field.
Shortlisted applicants may be invited to an interview in July to discuss their proposal.
The successful candidate will be selected by a panel of key industry personnel, and the Fellowship will be awarded at the 68th Sydney Film Festival, which will take place 18-29 August 2021.
For any questions, please contact Lisa Kitching at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions for the Deutsche Bank Fellowship close 18 July 2021. Apply now through SFF’s Eventival portal.
