MADE IN CBR is a $250,000 Special Purpose Fund established in 2020 under the CBR Screen Fund to provide specific support to ACT Screen professionals whose work and income have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
MADE IN CBR supports screen projects that have the potential to connect with markets and reach audiences, as well as supporting the development of ACT Screen professionals.
The Fund is in the form of a loan (not a grant). However, it is intended by Screen Canberra that the loan be one part of a project’s overall finance strategy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has halted production on the majority of local screen projects and Screen Canberra appreciates that these circumstances could provide an opportunity for local practitioners to progress projects in development. However, Screen Canberra will also consider applications seeking funding for projects that may have faltered in production or post-production due to COVID-19.
