QUEENSLAND FILMMAKERS RECEIVE DISTINCTLY AUSTRALIAN INITIATIVE FELLOWSHIPS

17 January 1996

Queensland filmmakers have received three 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.
Producer Fellowships have been awarded to animator Carlos Alperin; Judy Hamilton, who is best known for her children's series Penpals; and short filmmakers Lori-Jay Ellis and Robyn Evans.
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: "Carlos, Judy, Lori-Jay and Robyn are just some of the many talented filmmakers working in Queensland, many of whom have received vital support and encouragement from Film Queensland. I'm just sorry the Commission couldn't support more filmmakers although this year more were successful than last. I'm sure the money will be spent on films we will all see soon and I wish them the best of luck."
