Welcome

Established in 2005, Wide Angle Tasmania is the state’s screen development organisation.  It is a not-for-profit organisation that nurtures local talent by providing WAT members with advice and production initiatives.  We also provide access to film production equipment for members and non-members.

Welcome to our community - we hope our site provides inspiration and tools to help you create.  Our staff are just a call or email away.

Screen Access partnership with 26TEN

WAT engages over 200 volunteer actors and crew each year and they must sign a contract that outlines the rights they are giving to the producer. 

Experience shows that many volunteers have very limited experience with contracts and that the legal terminology currently used is a very real barrier to volunteers being able to make informed consent. WAT is pleased to announce that our organisation received a 26TEN grant this month to create contract templates that are easily understood by all.

Wide Angle Tasmania to close June 2016

MEDIA RELEASE 27/10/15 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WIDE ANGLE TASMANIA TO CLOSE

It is with considerable disappointment and regret that the Board of Wide Angle Tasmania has announced that the state’s screen resource organization will close in June, 2016.

With Screen Australia funding to cease at the end of this year and Screen Tasmania offering reduced rather than increased funding, the Board has decided that there is no viable way for Wide Angle Tasmania to continue in the long term.
