Bob Maza Fellowship – Call for Applications – Deadline 20 April 2007

14 March 2007

The Australian Film Commission (AFC) is calling for applications from established Indigenous actors working professionally in the film, television and/or theatre industries, for the Bob Maza Fellowship.

The Bob Maza Fellowship is awarded to an established Indigenous actor to further their professional development, provide longevity in their career, and raise their profile internationally.

The $10,000 fellowship may be used for international travel, further training or short courses at an international film training institution, and/or for meeting with agents, castings and establishing contacts in the international arena.

The Bob Maza Fellowship is sponsored by the AFC's Indigenous Branch to commemorate and celebrate the life and work of Bob Maza (1939 -2000) - the first Indigenous AFC Commissioner, an actor and activist, and a lifelong theatre and film advocate and mentor.

Previous recipients include Leah Purcell, Tom E Lewis and Ursula Yovich. The 2007 Bob Maza Fellowship recipient will be announced during the opening of the Message Sticks Film Festival at the Sydney Opera House on 4 May 2007.

Guidelines and application forms can be obtained from the AFC website www.afc.gov.au. Applications close Friday 20 April 2007.
