Have your say on the future of our industry

Matthew Deaner, Executive Director and Matthew Hancock, Strategy and Insights are travelling around the country as part of our National Roadshow to sit down with local state agencies to talk about local issues and shed some light on Canberra's policy agenda. They’ll also give an update on Screen Producers Australia’s current industrial negotiations to modernise industry agreements and the range of new production services soon to be available.

Locally produced television and film productions such as INXS: Never Tear Us Apart and The Sapphires are attracting huge audiences yet there are challenges ahead. Our public broadcasters are under review, there are fears of deregulation of commercial broadcasters and concerns are growing around securing theatrical releases. So what can you do about it? You can start by attending the National Roadshow! Times and venues are below. RSVP to with you name and city you will be attending.
