Featured campaigns and backgrounding documents » Screen Policy Agenda, 2015


Screen Producers Australia echoes the views of a wide range of industry stakeholders in calling on Government, opposition and the minor parties to develop a holistic screen policy.

The independent production sector is highly competitive and is affected greatly by policy mechanisms across the arts and communications portfolios. These businesses are characterised by their professionalism, entrepreneurial spirit and quality of output. They operate in a media landscape that is equally characterised by its dynamism, in which technological changes are giving rise to changes in production, distribution, consumption and business models.

Screen Producers Australia trusts that a holistic policy will provide clarity and certainty to industry, whilst reinforcing the importance of a diverse range of intersecting government interventions that are critical in building industry confidence and capacity to deliver on cultural and commercial objectives.
