ACTF Funding

The ACTF provides funding and support to independent producers and writers of quality children's programs.

We support the creation of new children's programs which have an Australian voice and point of view, and which children, parents and educators will find engaging, entertaining, accessible, creative and innovative. 

ACTF funding is available for:

Development

To progress an idea to the stage where it’s market ready for pitching; or, if a project already has market attachment, to take it to a further development stage(s).

Production

Via Distribution Advances and/or Equity Investment.

Before we provide funding, we assess the project against a range of criteria, including:

  • The originality and quality of the story
  • The experience of the team behind it
  • Its potential to engage with young audiences

Although overall quality is our primary consideration in assessing a project, we also seek to encourage:

  • Diverse stories, voices and faces
  • An Australian voice and point of view
  • Bringing new and emerging producers to the industry, while harnessing the skills of experienced producers
  • Works that address gaps in content/genre/age groups. 

With our support, we aim to elevate every project to the next level and ensure it is produced to the highest standards. We will therefore provide feedback, and creative approvals and regular consultation are a condition of any type of production investment.
