An award fitting of the fine person who it is named after
Screenwest, FTI and Artemis International have announced a new award to celebrate the life of accomplished documentary filmmaker Brian Beaton, who passed away in June this year.
The Brian Beaton Award will be presented annually at the West Australian Screen Awards and is available to factual filmmakers of all levels working on projects that have the potential to contribute to the community and initiate positive social change.
The award recipient will receive tailored mentorships from leading industry professionals in Western Australia, a cash contribution of $5,000 towards the project, as well as additional support through FTI’s philanthropy program.


Award guidelines will be available in early 2017, with the first award presented at the 2017 WASAs. Anyone who would like to contribute to the award prize can make a donation to the fund via FTI through philanthropy@fti.asn.au or through the "Donate" Button above. Donors will be provided with a tax deductible receipt.




In Lieu of sending out Christmas cards this year Artemis International have kindly donated to the recently established BRIAN BEATON AWARD fund, which is to be awarded in 2017 to a filmmaker working on a social impact documentary. Brian was a well respected producer and work colleague to all at Artemis and their donations to the award fund reflect their affection for him.
