Screenworks is calling for entries from for regionally based NSW and Qld practitioners for its Career Pathways Programs spanning Regional Producer Elevator Program, Director Pathways Program and Inside the Writers Room.

Participants will be provided with bespoke support and guidance from some of Australia’s most respected writers, directors, and producers.

“There have been many rewarding outcomes for the regional practitioners who have been through our Career Pathways Programs over the past eight years,” explained Screenworks CEO Lisa O’Meara. “We are seeing their profiles and projects gain recognition at domestic and international levels and I’m proud that Screenworks have played a positive role in their career trajectories”.

Screenworks’ 2024 Regional Producer Elevator Program will provide two regional NSW producers and two regional Queensland producers with $3,500 to implement their career goals whilst providing them with professional introductions and connections to industry. They will also attend the 2024 Screenworks Regional To Global Forum and the 2024 Screen Forever Conference. This program is supported by Screen NSW, Screen Queensland and Screen Producers Australia (SPA).

Two regional NSW directors will be granted $3,500 to implement a bespoke professional development program that will help them advance their screen directing career as part of the Director Pathways Program. This program will be delivered in partnership with Screen NSW, Screen Queensland and the Australian Directors’ Guild.

Finally, five regional NSW screenwriters will be selected to participate in the ever popular Inside The Writers Room program, 2 from regional Queensland and 3 from regional NSW. Each will have the opportunity to observe a professional writing team working on television drama at some of Australia’s most respected production companies – BBC Studios Productions, Easy Tiger Productions, Hoodlum Entertainment, Jungle Entertainment and Unless Pictures. Inside the Writers Room is being funded by Screen NSW and Screen Queensland.
