The prestigious scholarship, created in the generous creative spirit of the iconic Academy Award-winning actor, will be given to an Australian actor who is pursuing a global career, or wishes to train internationally. The recipient should display an extraordinary commitment to their craft and an exceptional ability to transform their art onto the screen. The scholarship is open to actors from 18-35 years of age.
#AiFUpload is an online shorts festival inviting AiF members to share their original works through the world’s largest creative digital community — Instagram! We encourage shorts across all genres to be considered for submissions including animation, comedy, drama, action and documentary.
Already a proven career booster for previous recipients, the three-month work placement in the offices of both Village Roadshow Pictures (Ready Player One, Ocean’s 8) and Animal Logic Entertainment (Peter Rabbit, The Lego Batman Movie) provides the recipient with first-hand experience in the world of financing, developing and marketing of major motion pictures.
