Screen Queensland has opened applications for SheDoc 2024 in partnership with Documentary Australia.

SheDoc 2024 is open to women working as screen practitioners in the factual space at any career level and can be used to fund travel, research, mentoring, residencies, skill development, project development and forming impact strategies. Grants are not available for production funding or equipment but can support Queensland women working as factual producers, directors, writers, cinematographers, editors, sound designers, composers and more. Applications are strongly encouraged from First Nations practitioners, as well as women from diverse groups.
