Screen Canberra builds global partnerships

Posted 1 Mar 2019

8 international filmmakers have joined the Accelerator POD Program, a 4-month gateway program for writers, directors and producers seeking to develop and market-test feature film projects with strong commercial prospects.

Filmmakers from Wellington and Singapore will partake in this innovative program facilitated by story developer Karel Segers. This collaborative experience offers participants a pathway to completing a market-driven first draft script in 11-months.

Canberra has already delivered bespoke versions of POD in both cities as part of trade delegations with the ACT Government allowing them to build global relationships with international Film Agencies.
