Supporting WA production
Western Australia is a hub for talented and passionate artists within film, television and digital production.
Screenwest offers a platform for creative Western Australians to fashion world-class stories on screen, sought after by audiences everywhere. By simply playing, you have made it possible for Lotterywest to support Screenwest for decades.
"Screenwest brings WA stories to life, showcasing our unique identity for audiences far and wide, and I am pleased to see this incredible work continue,” Premier Mark McGowan said.
"For more than 25 years the State Government, through Lotterywest, has supported the WA film industry through Screenwest with more than $117 million in grants.”
Some of Screenwest’s work in recent history include, supporting four feature films, two scripted television series, two children's scripted television series and factual programs including:
- Rams - drama feature film with Sam Neill and Michael Caton shot in Mount Barker.
- The Heights - television series shot in East Perth and at ABC studios.
- H is for Happiness - children's feature shot in the town centre and surrounds of Albany.
