Queer Screen Completion Fund

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.

We appreciate that resources available to LGBTIQ filmmakers are highly limited and independent artists struggle to secure the funding needed to complete works and support. Therefore, submissions are accepted for feature films, documentaries and web series about LGBTIQ people and their communities.

Queer Screen strives to support LGBTIQ filmmakers through grants, awards and programs. Queer filmmakers reflect the diversity of our communities and tell stories that directly reflect our lives and struggles. It is for this reason Queer Screen will provide up to $15,000 in Completion funding for screen projects.
