LEVEL ONE, FTI’s First Co-Working Space For Game Makers Is Moving To SK Games!
FTI & The City Of Perth Present:
City Of Vincent Film Project: Deadline extended until July 27th.
FTI’s Philanthropy in Film program launched last night with emerging producers pitching and raising over $60,000 so far for their projects, with more donations on the way.
Over 100 philanthropists, members of the business sector and filmmakers mingled at the launch at the State Library last night. Eight of WA’s most talented young producers including Jeffory Asselin, Eva Di Blasio, Lauren Elliott, Georgina Isles, Tenille Kennedy, Alice Ross, Kate Separovich and Ella Wright pitched projects ranging from an interactive documentary connecting the youth of Australia, a rom- com set in a world devastated by a mutant pig-virus to a TV comedy series and a documentary about Western Australia’s own Hoodoo Gurus.
Ian Booth, Chief Executive of ScreenWest, confirmed that producers receiving donations through this FTI program will be eligible to apply for additional funding support from ScreenWest. There is a pool of $50,000 available with the cap of $20,000 per project. James Boyd, State Manager of Creative Partnerships Australia (CPA) upped the ante, announcing that CPA would match the first $30,000 of donations, potentially tripling donations made to the projects. These offers are on a first-in best-dressed basis, so time is of the essence.
Now, FTI invites everyone to join the excitement. Donors have until 5pm Friday 5 June to qualify for the Creative Partnerships Australia matched funding, and until Tuesday 30 June for the ScreenWest scheme. All donations are 100% tax deductible under FTI’s Item 1 Deductible Gift Recipient Status. Visit www.fti.asn.au to look at the projects and donate.
FTI CEO Paul Bodlovich, said the evening was designed to create a bridge between the philanthropic and business sectors and the filmmakers of WA and to start a conversation. “This is an exciting industry, and it makes sense for leaders in the community to be part of it.”
Comments from the night ranged from ”This is a game changer for the industry”, “The quality of the presentations was immense” and “…So important to get filmmakers and the business community connecting”. The donor perspective also came through in this comment “I had no idea how many good ideas are happening in WA and those filmmakers have real passion. Can’t wait to see the projects on the screen.”
