Professional Attachments Program

The Professional Attachment Program, funded by Film Victoria and managed by Open Channel, is a response to the need to provide skills development opportunities for early career Victorian screen industry practitioners. The program provides a significant opportunity for Victorian practitioners to gain experience within some of Victoria’s established film and television production companies and address skills gaps in the local industry.

Raw Nerve production initiative

Raw Nerve is a Screen Network (SN) national short film production initiative supported by Screen Australia. Open Channel offers a select number of emerging Victorian filmmakers the opportunity to make a high quality, low budget short film with support from leading industry experts. In recent years Open Channel has developed Raw Nerve into a highly prized pathway for emerging filmmakers by providing an experienced Producer in the role of Supervising Producer, and through significant in‐kind support from Digital Pictures, Chameleon Casting, Music & Effects and Cinema Nova.
