AFTRS Alumni Works Among Queer Screen Completion Fund Winners

Crew of ‘Unsound’ | Dir. Ian Watson

Two projects by AFTRS alumni are among the recipients of the 2020 Queer Screen Completion Fund.

At the launch of the Mardi Gras Film Festival in February, Queer Screen announced the recipients which include Unsound, directed by AFTRS tutor and alumnus Ian Watson, and Tales of an Upstart co-written and co-produced by alumnus Craig Boreham. As part of the initiative, both projects will receive $2,500 in production funding.

Unsound had its world premiere at the festival and is now headed interstate to screen at Melbourne Queer Film Festival.
