Before you begin

A co-production is a project which has been made under an Arrangement (ie a Treaty or Memorandum of Understanding) with a partner country, and has been approved as an official co-production by the Competent Authority nominated in each country.

For more information, please refer to the Co-Production program guidelines.

The Producer Offset and Co-Production Unit (POCU) anticipates you will have spoken to them about your project prior to beginning this on-line application process. We recommend this to ensure your project can meet the requirements of the program and that you have the necessary information to complete your application.

You will need to attach your Eligibility tool to your application. This tool allows you to monitor your project's balance of Australian spend, points and Australian financial contribution, and whether they meet the necessary minimum contribution.

Please note that:

  • The approval of an official co-production does not guarantee financing from Screen Australia.
    A separate application should be made to Screen Australia in line with its existing funding guidelines and procedures.
  • Screen Australia reserves the right to provide details of a project’s co-production arrangements to government organisations which require this information in order to consider an application for finance.

Screen Australia aims to assess Provisional Co-Production Applications within six weeks of receipt of a complete application. However, it is important to remember that Screen Australia will consult with the other Competent Authority during the assessment process and that Co-Production approval can only be granted once each Authority has approved the project. You should ensure your co-producer is lodging a complete application to its Competent Authority at the same time. Delays with your co-producer’s provisional application assessment will cause delays with Screen Australia’s assessment.
