BCM289: Virtual Cosmopolitanism

Screen Shot 2017-10-16 at 1.20.11 PM

“It is important for us to acknowledge and respect each others’ perspectives — our ways of seeing the world — and to find that place where we can all meet, grow and learn. Perhaps the response to this challenge is the creation of the third cultural space.” (pg 9, http://indigenous.education.qld.gov.au/SiteCollectionDocuments/eatsips-docs/eatsips_2011.pdf)

BCM289: Co-production treaties: Successes and Gaps

  • https://www.screenaustralia.gov.au/funding-and-support/co-production-program
  • The co-production program has been put in place to encourage production and foster relationships between international filmmakers. In allowing two or more international producers to come together to make a screen project, it provides them with the opportunities to access the resources required to produce projects that will be internationally competitive. The objective of the program is to foster projects that will be truly international in terms of storytelling, budget ranges and the audiences to which they appeal.
