Film and documentary buffs who live in property in Darwin will be pleased to know new grants issued this year will support the industry to provide you with a wider viewing selection.
The Northern Territory's film industry is growing and these new developments will help locals enjoy the fruits of regional filmmakers' labour, with grants for screen culture events as well as for development within the industry itself.
Screen Territory is giving out the grants, which will provide residents of real estate in Darwin with many new opportunities to see films they otherwise would have missed out on. Nine proposals were successfully given a grant.
These include a grant for the Darwin Film Society and one for Flix in the Wet as well as the NT travelling Film Festival, which will be making its way through the state in February.
Other applicants to receive grants include four documentary makers – Rita Cattoni, Dylan McDonald, Timothy Parish and Timothy Woods – who will be making their way to DocWeek 2014 in Adelaide to present their projects to an array of broadcasters, distributors and other potential investors.
"Screen Territory provides skills, capacity, employment and expenditure so people from all around the world have the opportunity to engage with Territory screen stories in the future," said Minister for Arts and Museums Matt Conlan.
