The Diverse Screens Project commissions emerging and mid-career filmmakers to take on the theme of cultural diversity in the arts. These films are specifically designed to provoke, inspire and generate discussion.
Artist as advocate
This strategic project positions the artists as advocates, and creates powerful and engaging films which double as training and advocacy tools. A mix of documentaries and mockumentaries, they present insights into the experiences of culturally diverse artists in Australia.
