ACTF welcomes Federal Government funding boost

The Australian Children’s Television Foundation welcomes the additional investment of $14.5 million over four years announced by Minister for the Arts Tony Burke to support Australian children’s content. 

Bernadette O’Mahony, Acting CEO said: “Children are a unique audience, and deserve quality local content - stories that are made especially for them that reflect our culture, and their world and voices.

"This additional funding means the ACTF will be able to invest in even more brilliant Australian kids shows for all ages and across all the platforms that children are watching. There will be more groundbreaking projects like Windcatcher (Stan.), Eddie’s Lil’ Homies (NITV/Netflix) and Crazy Fun Park (ABC) – watched and loved by Australian children and their families, as well as audiences around the world.

"The ACTF is pleased to be able to continue to raise the bar for Australian children and provide them with the best stories, made especially for them."
