Short films get Screen Australia funding

A comedy and a drama/thriller are the latest recipients of funding from Screen Australia’s Short Film Completion Fund.

The films, Bloomers and Test Drive, were created by Michelle Law and Corrie Chen, and Lynne Vincent McCarthy respectively. Both films were given a share of $60,000 and both are in post-production.

Films supported through the Short Film Completion Fund include Yardbird (Julius Avery, Michael Spiccia, and Jessica Mitchell), which was selected for Cannes 2012 and was the winner of the Sydney Film Festival’s Dendy Award, and Spine (Sophie Miller, and Sheila Jayadev), which was the winner of Best Short Film at the 2012 Melbourne International Film Festival.
