The Australian Directors Guild (ADG) and Screen Australia today announced a director’s attachment for RIDLEY SCOTT’S upcoming feature Alien: Covenant that is filming in Australia in 2016. The Director’s Attachment Scheme is an industry incentive for emerging feature film directors to develop their craft. Funded by Screen Australia and managed by the ADG, the scheme provides three director’s attachments annually. Participating films primarily shot in Western Australia, Queensland and South Australia will only be open to applicants from those states. Participating films shot in all other states and territories will be open to applicants from anywhere in Australia. “We are pleased to announce this attachment on this huge international film directed by one of the world’s most renowned directors RIDLEY SCOTT,” said ADG CEO Kingston Anderson. “This is a unique opportunity to work with one of the world’s best directors.” Screen Australia’s Head of Production Sally Caplan said, “This is a wonderful scheme and the attachment to ALIEN: COVENANT is a particularly extraordinary opportunity. Thanks to all for making this happen”. The deadline for applications is Monday 22nd February 2016.
