The Industry Development program develops the skills of Tasmanian screen practitioners, recognising that highly-skilled professionals are vital for the long-term growth of the screen industry in Tasmania. It provides support for experienced practitioners to attend interstate and international markets and events, and also provides for both structured and ad-hoc inbound training, business travel and limited support of events with significant professional development aspects.
The 'screen industry' includes game and interactive media developers.
Please Note: There may be periodic COVID restrictions in place in Australia and internationally, and they may come into effect without warning. If you apply to Screen Tasmania and are funded for any travel, Screen Tasmania will not be liable for any charges for quarantine or medical costs incurred during the supported travel. Prospective applicants should take this into consideration before applying.

Eligible activities or events may include:
Companies or incorporated organisations may apply for support to hold professional development seminars or workshops in Tasmania or for specific initiatives that build skills and knowledge of Tasmanian industry professionals.
Sole traders (with ABNs) and companies may apply for support to attend business meetings, conferences and other events which will enhance their prospects of securing investment and strengthening industry networks.
For international travel, applicants need to have at least 3 market-ready projects and confirmed meetings with distributors, prospective co-production partners or financiers and be experienced enough to be able to gain meetings with companies who can advance projects.
For travel to supported events, applications from emerging practitioners without marketplace meetings, may be funded as an initial learning experience. Places are, however, limited and will be assessed against the criteria of: (a) demonstrated commitment to a career in the screen industry; (b) having a plan in order to maximise the networking and pitching opportunities provided by the event; and, (c) having a slate of projects in development.
Screen Tasmania will also organize and host events using this program to address skills gaps and other needs, such as those identified in the Screen Industry Workforce Development Plan (WDP).
We reserve the right to vary these Guidelines as necessary. In exceptional circumstances, we also reserve the right to set aside some or all of the requirements.
