Development and production funding for screen stories.

11 outstanding projects have been selected by Metro Screen to receive $115,000 in funding through the Breaks – Story to Screen program this month.

The comprehensive Breaks funding program is focused on getting stories from script to screen with a cash production budget, production facilities support and a craft skills development program including the Story Hothouse and the Directors Foundry.

Over the past three years, Metro Screen has been funding creative storytelling and emerging practitioners through the First Breaks, Break Out and Breakthrough programs.

The Breaks – Story to Screen program will produce eight short films and three web-based programs by early career film and content makers.  Cultural diversity is represented through the range of projects including content producers from Indigenous and multicultural backgrounds.

“These scripts were selected for their strong ideas and potential to develop into an exciting and diverse production slate for 2013.”
David Opitz Projects and Productions Manager, Metro Screen

Breaks- Story to Screen is proudly supported by Screen NSW and Screen Australia’s RAW NERVE program.
