Filmmakers are invited to submit proposals based on a range of Western Australian heritage collection materials identified by the State Library.
Up to six films will be produced with a budget of $15,000 per film and are expected to be released and available on the State Library's website in early 2023.
Applications are open, and the guidelines and eligibility criteria are available on Screenwest's website at https://www.screenwest.com.au
