Film Victoria pledges $140K to create more opportunities for women in games

Film Victoria pledges $140K to create more opportunities for women in games

November 14, 2017 | By Chris Kerr




Australian government agency Film Victoria is dishing out $140,000 in grants to help create more opportunities for women in games. 

The grants will support seven game studios that have each agreed to offer placements to women through Film Victoria's 'Games Professional Placements' program.

Selected participants will be given the chance to gain valuable experience across a diverse range of positions at some of the region's leading game companies, including Fighting Fantasy developer Tin Man Games and The Lego Batman Movie dev PlaySide Studios. 

"These seven companies share our commitment to improving inclusiveness and gender balance within the games industry," said Film Victoria CEO, Jenni Tosi. "The selected individuals will all be involved in working on exciting new projects which will enhance their skills base and enable them to secure ongoing employment in the future."

"These additional opportunities will further strengthen this dynamic sector and continue to boost Victoria’s reputation as a great place to make games."

Individual placement opportunities will be advertised once they've been finalized by the companies involved. For more information on the program, and to see a complete list of participating studios, check out the Film Victoria website.
