NT Enterprise Grant Fund

Northern Territory Enterprise Grant Fund expands Screen Territory’s support for NT screen industry businesses and practitioners by funding their development, the development of the screen content they produce, and the NT industry.

Informed by more than a decade of enterprise funding programs implemented by screen agencies worldwide, and taking into account the current scale and unique needs of the Territory screen industry, the Fund has been designed to be a key step in fostering the development of businesses with the commercial strength, scale and connections to compete globally for private and non-NTG investment, for audience, and for talent.
