Screen Queensland and SBS Unscripted Short Form Content Initiative: Three teams selected to go into production

Screen Queensland (SQ) and SBS are delighted to announce the three teams that will go into production creating unscripted short-form content for SBS On Demand in 2019.

The three teams are:

(1) Bananas 

3 x 5 minute episodes

Mary Duong (writer/producer), Rachel Anderson (writer/director)

A curious and playful look at growing up between two cultures in the Sunshine State, with particular focus on food and family, presented by two Australian-born Asian friends who are awkward, honest, and warm in equal parts.

(2) Monsters of Many Worlds 

3 x 5 minute episodes

Daniel Mulvihill (writer/producer), Madeleine Dyer (writer/director)

An online series about messed-up monster stories from around the world.

(3) Aunty Dawn Daylight 

​One 15 minute episode 

Nurdewi Djamal (director/producer), Callan Murray (director)

Aunty Dawn Daylight, a proud First Nations woman, recounts her childhood and the dark history of living under the 1939 Aboriginal Preservation and Protection Act.

Congratulations to these Queensland filmmakers selected as part of the SQ/SBS initiative.
