Screenrights Cultural Fund open for applications

Screenrights’ 2023 Cultural Fund is open for applications, with up to $250,000 in funding available for projects that respond to the annual focus of New Visions.

Continuing in its efforts to reduce barriers to entry and increase the diversity of funded initiatives, for the second year Screenrights will be accepting expressions of interest from applicants who are less experienced in funding submissions. Through the EOI process, these applicants can draw on external assistance provided by Screenrights to help shape their submissions in order to optimise their chances of receiving funding.

“New Visions aim to let us see something differently. Perhaps it’s a reimagining of creative processes, an innovative way to connect with audiences, or a project which destroys stereotypes – or perhaps all of these,” says Screenrights Board Director and WIFT NZ member Rachel Antony.

The Fund awards up to $50,000 per initiative, with a total funding pool of $250,000 available each year.
Applications close on Wednesday 12 April, at 7pm NZT.

The guidelines and application form are now available here.
