ScreenWest Indigenous Strategy wins Premier's Award

ScreenWest, Western Australia's screen funding and development agency, has been recognised for its work supporting Indigenous filmmakers and storytelling, winning the Improving Indigenous Outcomes category at the 16th annual WA Premier's Awards for the ScreenWest Indigenous Screen Strategy.

The Improving Indigenous Outcomes category recognises projects that provide Indigenous Australians with greater opportunity and capacity to determine their own lives through employment, participation and strong communities.

ScreenWest has supported the films Mad Bastards, Bran Nue Dae, Jandamarra’s War and television series The Circuit, Straight Shootin’ (Mary G's talk show), and Waabiny Time, the first Indigenous language program aimed at an early childhood audience.
