NITV has opened applications from remote Indigenous filmmakers for 15-minute documentary submissions for its annual Spirit Initiative. Formerly titled the Spirit Award it includes a professional development opportunity and a $12,000 short-documentary production fund. The new-look initiative focuses on creating more awareness of Indigenous languages.
NITV Commissioning Editor, Jade Christian, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for an emerging remote Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander filmmaker to develop their skills and increase their understanding of a national broadcaster. We are excited with the extended offering and look forward to receiving a diverse range of ideas from across remote Australia.”
General Manager of the Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA), Daniel Featherstone, said: “The Spirit Initiative is a really valuable investment from NITV in the remote Indigenous media sector, which is hugely important in maintaining Indigenous language and culture.”
Previous winners of the Spirit Award have included the Pilbara and Kimberley based PAKAM for their Marumpu Wangka (Kukatja Hand Signs) production and Central Australia’s PAW Media for Desert Yarns – ‘Yuendumu Early Days and First Contact.
The winner will join NITV’s central office in Sydney for a three-week placement where they will be mentored and trained by experienced staff across a range of departments. They will be commissioned to produce a short 15-minute Our Stories documentary in language, alongside a news story from their local community. They will also attend the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) in Melbourne in March 2017.
Applicants are required to submit a three minute reel showcase of their work and their 15 minute documentary submission. Applications close 31 August 2016, with the winner to be announced at the 18th National Remote Indigenous Media Festival in Yirrkala from 26 – 30 September 2016.

Researchers have found a link between using paracetamol during pregnancy and an increased risk of behavioural problems in children. Scientists have found an association between mothers who took the drug in the first and third trimester of pregnancy and hyperactivity and emotional problems in their seven-year-old children.
Paracetamol is the world’s most popular painkiller and is the only one deemed safe to take during pregnancy. But there is a growing body of research suggesting it could affect the development of children in the womb, with studies linking it with conditions as diverse as asthma, infertility and autism. Pregnant women have been told there is no need to panic – they should continue to take the lowest dose needed for the shortest time possible and see their doctor if they have any concerns. While alcohol and smoking are strongly discouraged, paracetamol has generally been seen as safe and is used by many during in pregnancy for pain and fever. However, Evie Stergiakouli of the University of Bristol and coauthors analysed data for nearly 8,000 mothers and found use of paracetamol at 18 and 32 weeks of pregnancy was associated with increased risk of conduct problems and hyperactivity symptoms in children. Paracetamol use at 32 weeks of pregnancy was associated with higher risk for emotional symptoms and difficulties in children. However, the authors say the risk of not treating fever or pain during pregnancy should be carefully weighed against any potential harm to offspring. Dr Tim Overton, of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said: ‘It is important to highlight that from these results we cannot determine a direct link between paracetamol usage and any behavioural problems. ‘Paracetamol is one of the most common medicines used to reduce a high temperature and ease pain; it is safe and is used routinely during all stages of pregnancy.
