The Natalie Miller Fellowship invites women in the Australian screen industry to apply for its annual grant of up to $20,000. Our mission is to inspire female leadership and this grant is designed to recognise, nurture and empower the next generation of female leaders in the screen industry.
Applications are open to all women in the screen industry across all fields, from production to exhibition, broadcast, distribution and post-production services. The Fellowship will support those seeking financial assistance in pursuing professional development through attachments, internships, secondments, travel, and other means.
Past recipients of the Natalie Miller Fellowship have included Kristy Matheson, (Director of Film, ACMI), Rachel Okine (VP, Acquisitions at STXInternational), Harriet Pike (Head of Production & Development, WildBear Entertainment), Rebecca Hammond (Head of Localisation & Access Services, Deluxe Australia), Courtney Botfield (Director, Goodship) and Sasha Close (Film Programming Manager, Wallis Cinemas).

“If the growing momentum towards greater diversity in the Australian screen industry is to have any lasting effect, women must have more seats at the table when it comes to green-lighting and programming screen content,” says Sue Maslin, NMF President. “International evidence has repeatedly shown that this will not only lead to a healthier and more vibrant culture, but is also better for the bottom line.”
Applications for the current Natalie Miller Fellowship close at 5pm Monday 20 August 2018. The recipient will be announced in November, 2018. Find out more and apply online here.
