The Screenwise Founder’s Acting Scholarship

The opportunity to access quality skills training as a screen actor in Australia has become increasingly difficult to access. Economically and socially disadvantaged students are most affected, and will be faced with numerous barriers in pursuit of a career as a professional Film and TV Actor. Many young and talented Australian actors may never achieve their goals as a consequence. Somewhere across our nation another Hemsworth or Kidman may never reach their potential as a professional Film and TV Actor. The question remains, what can our industry leaders do to ensure that Australian Film and TV Actors continue to thrive on local and international screens?
