RED Initiative for WA Indigenous Female Writer/Directors

RED Initiative logo and sponsors

In 2020, Screenwest will work with Pink Pepper Productions, Ramu Productions and Aotearoa (New Zealand) Production company Brown Sugar Apple Grunt, to offer a new and unique opportunity for up to eight Western Australian Indigenous female Writer/Directors to participate in a development writing and directing initiative called RED.

The successful applicants will develop one scripted 80-minute Indigenous feature film project for production.

All eight Indigenous female creatives will be writing and directing 10-minute shorts that will intertwine a common theme, exploring the impact of ‘missing Indigenous women’ from a female Aboriginal perspective; for the combined feature film.

Development of the script will begin in May (with a 5-day writers’ retreat) and production may take place before late 2020 or early 2021.

Closing date: Monday, 24 February 2020.

For more information about the initiative, and instructions on how to apply, please visit Screenwest’s website.
