how can you change the game

We’re doing our part by helping women with the Future Creatives Initiative to get their foot in the door in the Australian Film Industry, and we would love you all to get around us and support making the winner screenwriter’s film.


Our crowdfunding campaign is now live! If you want to help changing the game, head to the Australian Cultural Fund's website and become one of the individuals pushing for the change!


All donations over $2 are tax deductible.



Pre-production has begun for the coming-of-age short film “Stalling” written by Nic James, the winner of the Initiatives ‘Emerging Screenwriter Award 2019’, and Taival Films is raising funds to be able to bring this story to life on screen with an amazing crew lead by women.

Taival Films created the Future Creatives Initiative because there are simply not enough women in key creative roles in the film industry. Lack of opportunity in production and exhibition is a known factor in this imbalance. Yet, at the same time, there is a high demand within the community for greater access to women’s stories on screen.

Supporting us is remarkable opportunity to be aligned with an initiative devoted to the promotion of gender equality in the screen and cultural industries. Not only that, but you will also be a big part of the process of giving women the rare opportunity to take their first step in film industry.


Taival films is asking for support from you, to be able to give these women the opportunity to create a film and tell a story worth being told.

All donations will be put towards the budget of the film in the means of catering, production design, talent costs, location permits and in a best case scenario, also paying all of the wonderful (at the moment) volunteer crew members for their outstanding contribution to bringing this story to life of screen.


We envision a final product festival worthy shot film, that portrays a strong female protagonist, and works as a vehicle for all female crew members tog get their foot in the door in the Australian film industry.


While you wait for the crew announcements, follow us on social media to learn more about the team working behind the scenes to make this all happen,

gain insight into why this initiative is so important, and show love for the campaign by sharing it with fellow Filmmakers.
