SOUTH AUSTRALIAN FILMMAKERS RECEIVE DISTINCTLY AUSTRALIAN INITIATIVE FELLOWSHIPS

17 January 1996

South Australian filmmakers have received two Australian Film Commission Distinctly Australian Initiative Fellowships.

The Distinctly Australian Fellowships are designed to provide career development opportunities for writers, script editors, writer/directors and producers.

A joint Producer Fellowship was awarded to Jane Ballantyne, Helen Leake, Rob George, Scott McDonald, Gus Howard and Mike Piper from Piper Films. Producer Terry Charatsis, who produced the feature films Struck By Lightning and The Life Of Harry Dare also received a Producer Fellowship.

The Producer Fellowship Scheme is designed to provide to producers of differing levels of experience the funds to allow consolidation of creative and business plans.

The Australian Film Commission announced a total of 57 Fellowships worth $975,000 to filmmakers around the country under the Distinctly Australian initiative.

Director of Film Development at the Australian Film Commission, Tim Read said: "The South Australian producing community is a strong, talented one - ably supported by the South Australian Film Corporation - and I know that these particular producers have interesting projects which hopefully will find their way into production faster as a result of this assistance. Generally speaking, the industry is under capitalised in the independent producing sector which is why these funds can be so helpful."
