More Film and TV Jobs for the Creative Capital

17 December 2014

Seven Victorian film and television projects have received Government funding, generating more than 300 job opportunities in our creative industries and adding $18 million to Victoria’s economy.

Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley, today announced the seven projects that will share $1.18 million in funding from Film Victoria’s Assigned Production Investment program.

The projects are an exciting blend of fiction features, documentaries and TV series. They include a second season of KooKoo Harajuku, the acclaimed series inspired by Gwen Stefani.

Documentaries include the Great Australian EducationExperiment, a four-part series dedicated to the contribution of our teachers and the importance of their skills.

Among the Victorian feature films is Shakespearian love story Taboo, set amongst the Yakel people of Vanuatu, at war with their neighbours.
