Regional Screen In LA Scholarship

Screenworks' new scholarship program will connect unique regional voices and stories to global audiences by providing a bespoke 4-week residency in Los Angeles in partnership with Australians in Film.

Across Australia there are many talented storytellers and screen practitioners living outside of our main cities that simply are not able to access the same opportunities as those living in our main metropolitan cities.

To address this problem one of Screenworks' primary aims is to discover these talented people and provide them with the support that they need to connect them and their stories to global audiences and screen industry opportunities.

Screenworks' will partner with Australians in Film in Los Angeles to establish a regional screen scholarship program that will provide a 4-week international residency for talented screen creatives living in regional, rural & remote Australia.

Each year Screenworks will complete a nation-wide application process that will specifically target regional screen creatives who have achieved initial success and are able to demonstrate signficant talent and career potential.

Scholarship recipients will receive:

- Return economy airfares from Australia to Los Angeles

- Living allowance and rent assistance for their 4-week residency in LA

- Support with travel arrangements and preparing in the lead up to the opportunity

- Five one-hour personalised sessions with industry consultants designed to equip the resident with general US industry knowledge, provide feedback  and act as a sounding board during the residency

- Introductions to relevant industry executives and creatives aligned to the recipients experience and needs

- Either: a LIVEREAD LA or an LA SCREENING event 

- Followup one-on-one personalised consultations with Screenworks following their return from Los Angeles

Each annual scholarship opportunity is valued at approximately $20,000 AUD. We want to raise $60,000 to cover the first 3 years of the program. Donations received in excess of the initial $60,000 target will be used towards future scholarship opportunities beyond the first 3 years.

Your support for the scholarship program will be acknowledged on the Screenworks Regional Screen in LA Scholarship webpage that will be created on www.screenworks.com.au.

Please contact Screenworks CEO Ken Crouch on (02) 6687 1599 or email ceo@screenworks.com.au if you have any questions about the scholarship program.
