What is Market funding?
Screen Queensland (SQ) Market funding supports producers, game developers and (where appropriate) other key creatives to market and sell high quality screen projects and games capable of engaging local and international audiences, winning critical acclaim and achieving commercial success. Funding is to support producers, game developers and projects as the foundation of a successful and sustainable industry, and is predominantly focused on supporting travel to key content markets.
Travel grants will only be offered where:
-a project is being introduced to the market;
-a project is ready to close; or
-where the showcase of a completed project can be converted to interest in new projects.
PLEASE NOTE: Applications close six (6) weeks prior to the event/market.
