Looking for an opportunity to develop, pitch and produce a feature film?

Accelerator POD is a 4-month program that brings the market to the forefront of the film development process, offering participants a structured and supportive environment to develop smart, original, genre projects that can connect with global audiences.

Accelerator POD will feed a much larger ACT initiative that aims to produce 4-6 genre feature films per year through the newly formed, Canberra-based production studio The Film Distillery.


The first film developed through last year's Accelerator POD is now in pre-production. Writer/Director Ryan Coonan and Writer/Producer Richard Barcaricchio's debut feature film Contained is a tightly-scripted thriller that they conceived during the 2015 program, and will look to shoot later this year.

Join Accelerator POD 2016 and take advantage of this unique development opportunity that could lead to getting your film made!
