Stan partners with ACTF
Stan and the ACTF have today announced a partnership to bring Australian children’s films to Stan. We are calling for pitches of feature length, live action films, with a G or PG rating, for children and their families, or a tween/teen audience. Applications open today (Wednesday, 11 August), with writers, creators and producers submitting their projects to https://actf.com.au/stan-initiative. Applications close Monday, 13 September.
Paul Fletcher MP, Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, said: “The Morrison Government is pleased to see the ACTF partner with Stan to bring high quality new content to Australian children and their families to enjoy, as well as providing excellent opportunities for Australian writers, creators and producers.
Cailah Scobie, Chief Content Officer at Stan, said: “The partnership between ACTF and Stan is another strong signal of Stan’s investment and commitment to produce original content for Australian audiences – and in this case our youngest audiences.
“ACTF has supported high quality children’s content for nearly 40 years, and are leaders in their field, and we welcome this collaboration and working with the sector to bring these feature films to life.”
Jenny Buckland, ACTF CEO, said: “The ACTF wants to support high quality Australian children’s content on all the platforms children engage with, and for a long time we have admired the original Australian content Stan has been commissioning for adult audiences. So we are absolutely thrilled that Stan is now stepping into the children’s space with this commitment to children’s films and looking forward to working with Stan in this partnership.”
Applications open today (Wednesday 11 August) and are due Monday, 13 September. To read the full creative brief and apply, visit: actf.com.au/stan-initiative
