SQ News

Queensland is home to skilled screen creatives and crew. In order to sustain and build the talent base of our local screen industry, Screen Queensland supports emerging screen practitioners to develop their practical skills, careers and professional networks, via the SQ Attach program. The SQ Attach program facilitates paid, project-based attachments that provide essential on-the-job experience on supported films, series and games.


Information for attachment applicants

Attachment opportunities are made available by application, for productions supported by Screen Queensland. Available opportunities will be listed below.

Successful applicants are engaged for a minimum of five weeks and are compensated at a minimum of Level 1 MEAA rates

Please note, in line with the Terms of Trade, full-time students are not eligible.

Attachment callouts do not have a set application submission date, as candidates are assessed as they apply. We encourage interested practitioners to submit their expression of interest as soon as possible.
