Format: Childrens

ACTF looks for high quality, original and innovative live action or animated children’s series or films that will appeal to an Australian child audience. Projects should be Australian created and led, have an Australian voice and point of view and reflect the diversity of Australian child audience.

Drama or factual programs are both welcome.

We are not looking for game shows. Unlikely to be interested in hosted studio based type of children’s programs.
