Gateway LA - NEW SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM TO SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS FROM AUSTRALIAN WRITERS ANNOUNCED BY NEW AUSTRALIANS IN FILM PRESIDENT, SIMONNE OVEREND.



Australians in Film has appointed a new President, Simonne Overend, 
and one of her first points of business as she steps into the role is to 
launch the Gateway LA script development program. 

The program will support the development of commercially successful, Australian
created television and movie screenplays for US and international audiences.

The Gateway LA prize will see between one and three winners announced per year. 
They will be selected from an ‘Aussie List’ of up to 10 film and television scripts, 
circulated to a group of judges selected from the AiF network. 

Winning projects receive a cash award to facilitate development of the script, a flight 
to LA, targeted meetings with producers and executives, and table reads. 

Applications Open on August 4 and close on September 12.
