The annual Hanlon Larsen Screen Fellowship will support a South Australian screen-practitioner who embodies the creative spirit of the late Cole Larsen, with funding to create an avant-garde screen-based work.
The initial five-year screen fellowship has been established by SA Film Corp chairman Peter Hanlon
This Fellowship is supported with $25,000 of cash funding by Peter Hanlon with Flinders University, and $10,000 of direct production support from The Mercury. The successful awardee’s project will be eligible for an Adelaide Film Festival screening.
Cole Larsen was a screen production lecturer at the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Flinders University, but this title belies the broad range of experiences Cole enjoyed through his lifetime. As well as being a loving husband, father, son, brother and uncle, Cole has worked, among other things (!), as a research and photo-journalist, director in children's television, corporate, community and medical documentary, a film Producer and Director and an artist.
