Nunga Screen 2021 Film Expressions of Interest

Nunga Screen (formally known as Black Screen) promotes cultural awareness and First Nations screen culture, providing entertainment to communities bringing them together in discussion. Country Arts SA supports the industry by showcasing Australia’s First Nations talent on and off-screen.

The program connects culture, stories and language with community through screen and celebrates South Australian First Nations film and culture.

Nunga Screen is a short film showcase held annually between Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week across South Australia hosted by suburban and regional venues. The screenings are a free community event.

The program is presented in South Australia by Country Arts SA and the ‘Give up Smokes’ 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 First Nations filmmakers to showcase their films across South Australia.
