Northern Territory Government

Audience development

Audience Development funding aims to provide opportunities for Northern Territory audiences and Territory screen practitioners to engage with and experience quality screen content and innovative practice.

Funding available

Screen Territory will support Northern Territory companies and organisations offering events or activities such as public screenings, festivals or tours that provide opportunities for audiences to see and experience quality screen content and innovative practice.

Base funding of up to $10,000 may be applied for, supported by a budget. This may be supplemented by additional funding based on fulfilment of specific industry development criteria, bringing the total up to a maximum of $20,000.

Note: The budget must not include costs for awards or prizes as these are not considered part of the overall event budget.


To be eligible for funding, organisations must be legally constituted. Applications may be made by a consortium or a group of organisations working together, in which case one organisation must be the lead organisation.

Assessment and funding levels

Screen Territory audience development funding is limited, and focused on initiatives that will expose Northern Territory audiences, including screen practitioners, to screen content that they would otherwise have difficulty accessing.

Whether to provide funding, and the amount of funding, are determined as part of the assessment process, taking into account the criteria set out below.
