About Film Lab: New Voices

Co-funded by the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC), Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) and Mercury CX (formerly known as Media Resource Centre), Film Lab: New Voices is a low-budget feature film skills development initiative designed to provide a platform for the next generation of diverse, South Australian filmmaking talent.

Film Lab: New Voices will offer a bold, ambitious, and creative program that will foster a new generation of key creatives and provide a tangible production and exhibition outcome.

The program will give three South Australian creative teams industry mentoring across a 12- month period to develop a low-budget feature film script which will be conceived and designed for the allocated budget.

Industry mentors with expertise in low-budget filmmaking will guide the three teams through a rigorous skills development program.

At the end of the development phase, one project will receive a $400,000 production grant to produce a feature film for premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival 2022. Teams are encouraged to be entrepreneurial however, they must obtain prior approval for any additional finance and in-kind support and be able to demonstrate that their films can be completed to a professional standard for the approved budget and timeframe.
