ELEVATE // Short Form Development and Production Initiative

Elevate is an initiative by Screenwest which is multi-phased, involving high-level script and project development prior to moving into production. The program consists of two strands, Elevate30 and Elevate70, both of which have a diversity element. Each Elevate strand will support at least one project with an Indigenous director and at least one project with a key creative (writer/director/producer) who identifies as CALD, LGBTQIA+ or as having a Disability. Emerging filmmaker teams (producer, director, writer) apply directly to Screenwest.
