Global Producers Exchange, providing Australia’s leading scripted producers the skills, knowledge, access, and relationships necessary to succeed in the global market, and to attract foreign investment and marketplace partnerships for Australian scripted content. The exchange aims to give Australian IP and cultural stories the opportunity to be developed with internationally based collaborators who possess a global outlook and a proven track record of success with international audiences, and to help position projects for success in the global market.
Up to six production companies/producers will be selected to participate in Screen Australia and AiF’s Global Producers Exchange, a scripted development lab that features a series of roundtables and masterclasses with key US based screen decision makers, and mentors. Each of the six participants will receive grants of up to $60,000 to enable them to take part in the program which will run from October 2021 to June 2022. Funding will also be used to work with writers and directors to quickly develop, refine and market the scripted projects on participant’s slate based on feedback and positive interest from mentors and US executives throughout the program. The Exchange will culminate in a two day market where participants will meet with and pitch projects to an individually curated group of high level US industry executives, including production companies, studios, financiers, distributors, broadcasters and streamers, in order to attract international partners and investment for their slates.
