SAFC launches South Australia’s first Aboriginal Screen Strategy
09 June 2016
Ambitious screen projects by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander filmmakers will be supported and developed under a new strategy officially launched last night by the South Australian Film Corporation.
The South Australian Film Corporation’s Aboriginal Screen Strategy 2015-2020, a first for SAFC, has been developed to build upon a tradition of 75,000 years of Aboriginal storytelling from South Australia.
The Aboriginal Screen Strategy will grow investment, increase production, provide professional development and mentoring for filmmakers, and build valuable industry partnerships.
The development of the new strategy has been guided by SAFC’s Aboriginal Screen Strategy Executive Lee-Ann Buckskin, and SAFC’s Chief Executive Annabelle Sheehan, and supported with advice from the SAFC Aboriginal Advisory Committee. The Committee comprises key national and local aboriginal arts and media figures.
