Who Got ACTF Funding This Round?

At our March Board meeting the ACTF committed funds to one project, an exciting adaptation of a home-grown classic: Seven Little Australians. Every Cloud Productions, led by Producers Fiona Eagger and Deborah Cox, received development funding to create a 4 x 1 hour miniseries based on Ethel Turner’s beloved novel. This timeless story about seven mischievous children who challenge their authoritarian father is sure to be landmark family viewing.

ACTF development funding for the 2015/2016 financial year has now been fully committed. As such no applications will be considered at our next Board meeting in June. The Board will next evaluate funding applications at the September meeting.

Further details can be found on our funding page.
