Are you an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Film Maker? Or have you made reconciliation themed films?

Nunga Screen, formerly known as Black Screen, promotes cultural awareness and Indigenous screen culture, providing entertainment to regional communities bringing them together in discussion.

Country Arts SA supports the industry by showcasing Australia’s Indigenous talent on and off screen during Nunga Screen. This is why we are currently looking for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander filmmakers or films themed around reconciliation for Nunga Screen 2020.

If you have a passion for film and are Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander – or have you made a short film themed around reconciliation – get your submissions in!

Country Arts SA Cultural Programming Manager Aboriginal and Reconciliation Programs Samantha Yates said: “Nunga Screen connects culture, stories and language with community through screen and celebrates South Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander film and culture. Each year during Reconciliation Week we help suburban and regional venues across South Australia host this free short film showcase and the communities love it. It’s a great way to come together, share stories, share some food and celebrate Indigenous culture.”

The program is presented in South Australia by Country Arts SA and the ‘Give up Smokes for Good’ campaign from Drug and Alcohol Services of South Australia (DASSA), with support from the South Australian Film Corporation.

The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for emerging and established Indigenous film makers to showcase their films across South Australia.

EOI closes on February 28, 2020 with film selection in March.
