Investment & Support

SQ recognises the need to support creative talent and crew as they grow their careers in the screen and games industries and believes that project-based attachments that create on-the-job skills can be an integral part of career development in features, broadcast, new platforms and games.

Screen Queensland encourages talent from underrepresented backgrounds to apply, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity; culturally and linguistically diversity; disability; sexuality and gender identities including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+); age; and talent from regional and remote Queensland.
