FREMANTLE’S Film and Television Institute will receive $260,000 of Western Australian Government money over two years to continue operating its Centre of Advanced Digital Screen Animation.
The Government has also given the institute a $70,000 grant to kick-start its fund raising appeal to upgrade its cinema equipment and facilities.
Arts Minister Sheila McHale said the FTI would now receive triennial funding of about $353,000 indexed annually to the consumer price index until June 30 2006 through ScreenWest and Lotterywest.
The Film and Television Institute is Australia’s oldest not-for-profit screen resource and development organisation.
It was established in 1971 and helps early-to-mid career independent film makers through production assistance schemes, certificate training programs, short courses, industry seminars, screening events and low-cost equipment and facilities hire.
