FAQs

POD is a series of workshops that connect participants with pathways that could lead to production. Accelerator TV POD and FILM POD is all about bringing writers together with the market and “accelerating” projects towards production.

The answer is yes! This year we have adapted the program to be much more interactive, and have opened it up to multiple market representatives. So this means there are more opportunities to get market interest.

The Film Distillery is one of the possible production pathways for Accelerator Film POD. They are specifically looking for low budget high-concept genre films. If selected, a project goes through a Pre-Accelerator stage which script development (at no cost to the participant). If the market is still interested, the project goes to Accelerator which is advanced commercialisation to get the project ready for final funding and production (seeking 4 – 6 projects for production annually).

Film Distillery projects can be sent anywhere, but must be produced and post produced in the Canberra region.

The first project completed through The Film Distillery and Accelerator POD, is The Furies
