TASMANIAN FILMMAKER RECEIVES DISTINCTLY AUSTRALIAN INITIATIVE FELLOWSHIPS

17 January 1996

Tasmanian filmmaker Kathryn Simmons has received an Australian Film Commission Distinctly Australian Initiative Fellowship.
The Distinctly Australian Fellowships are designed to provide career development opportunities for writers, script editors, writer/directors and producers.
Kathryn was awarded a Fellowship under the Producer Fellowship Scheme which is designed to provide to producers of differing levels of experience the funds to allow consolidation of creative and business plans.
Kathryn has produced short films, rock videos and corporate videos.
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: "Kathryn made a very successful film in the AFC/ABC Microdoc series with filmmaker Steve Thomas entitled Song For Fanny so it is particularly pleasing to follow up the support offered on that occasion with this Fellowship which I am sure will be put to good use. I think more Tasmanians should consider applying for funding through one or other of the Commission's investment programs or at least find out what's on offer."
