Queer Screen Completion Fund Round 8 Recipients

Queer Screen Completion Fund Round 8 Recipients

Queer Screen was thrilled to award $20,000 in vital completion funding to three Australian LGBTIQ+ screen projects in a live stream on Thursday March 10, 2022.

The ‘Queer Screen Completion Fund’ was established to provide support to Australian LGBTIQ+ filmmakers and storytellers whose work is consistent with the vision and mission of Queer Screen. It brings much needed financial assistance to worthy LGBTIQ+ screen projects and has awarded $122,000 to 23 projects since it was first given in 2016.

Queer Screen could not support the industry with iniatives like this without the support of our members, donors and sponsors and we are forever grateful for their commitment to Queer Screen and filmmakers.
