New Young Indigenous Film Fellowship
April 19, 2012

We’ve partnered with the Cockatoo Institute to establish the NSW Mining Young Indigenous Documentary Fellowship.


It is open to any Indigenous Australian under 35 years and the winner will have their project funded to create a documentary that captures their unique point of view as an Indigenous Australian.


The Fellowship will be awarded at the inaugural Cockatoo Island Film Festival in October and the film will be shown at the 2013 event. 


A panel of leading Indigenous filmmakers will select the winner including Darren Dale (Co-curator of the Message Sticks Indigenous Film Festival), Richard Frankland (Director of Stone Bros) and Pauline Clague (Producer of When Colin Met Joyce, SA Black Thing and Round Up). 


Our Indigenous people are an important part of our community and we want to help build career opportunities and provide the social infrastructure for healthy lives and a healthy culture in regional NSW. We want to see more Indigenous people taking part in these events and we’re excited about giving a young Indigenous filmmaker the opportunity to tell us about their life as they see it.


The deadline to apply for the Fellowship is 31 July 2012.


Check out Cockatoo Island Film Festival or contact Clare Sawyer at the Festival to apply for the Fellowship.
