Screenrights has announced five projects – including two from Aotearoa New Zealand – will be supported by the 2022 round of its annual Cultural Fund, to total $213,083 in funding for this year’s focus of ‘New Opportunities’. Celebrating its fifth year, the Screenrights Cultural Fund has now supported Australian and New Zealand initiatives with over $1 million in grant funding since it was established in 2018.
