fully funded features


The Second by Stephen Lance and Mairi Cameron selected as the SQ/Stan $1 million fully funded feature

Screen Queensland (SQ) and Stan present an Australian first with this SVOD-exclusive feature film commission for Queensland producers and creative teams (comprising writer, director or writer-director, and producer) to develop and produce a $1 million feature film, fully financed by SQ.

The program aims to position Queensland in the first wave of early-screen adopters to new and changing distribution methods, and to demonstrate that these can co-exist with the pursuit of Australian theatrical audiences and international festival audiences.

The Second will go on to receive production, distribution and marketing support comprising a $1 million production budget, an ‘event’ theatrical and festival release and exclusive SVOD distribution through Stan.
