ICTV connects audiences through the creation and sharing of original content for, and by, Indigenous Australians living in remote communities to show our way. We are a not-for-profit public company limited by guarantee and managed by an Indigenous Board of Directors.
The funding ICTV receives from the Federal Government under the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) only covers a significant part of our operational costs, but not all. To make up this shortfall, ICTV must generate income through paid TVC campaigns and facility hire. We will also be seeking philanthropic and volunteer support in the 2020-21 year.
Contributions from organisations and donors play a large role in keeping ICTV going and allow us to continue to provide our unique service.
ICTV believes strongly in giving back to our community and furthering the Indigenous media industry. Each year, we reinvest back into the industry through the ICTV production fund. Our aim is to share these funds with those who need it and support growth through original content production such as the Our Bedtime Stories series.
We encourage organisations and donors to match our contributions so that our impact can be extended even further by funding multiple projects or projects on a larger scale. Our goal is to facilitate content created for, and by, Indigenous Australians living in remote areas by supporting filmmakers and artists from all over Australia.
We are proud to share stories from remote communities to audiences across the country through ICTV as well as internationally via our digital service, ICTV PLAY. If you have a message to share that would benefit Indigenous Australians living in remote areas in a positive way, contact us to discuss how ICTV can work with you.
