Steve Anthopoulos, Natalia Stawyskyj, and Madeleine Stewart will receive professional mentorship and a grant of $30,000 from Screen NSW to create a short film that will premiere in June as part of the 69th Sydney Film Festival.

The Screenability Filmmakers Fund is part of a suite of initiatives under Screenability NSW, an open-ended policy commitment by the NSW Government, through Screen NSW, to work with industry to grow participation in the screen sector by supporting NSW-based filmmakers with a disability.
