Over successive budgets the Federal Government has cut Screen Australia by $51 million in the forward estimates to 2018-19. Hacking at the base of Screen Australia damages culture, investment, jobs and audiences. Screen Australia's investment in feature film, drama and documentaries is critical to supporting the independent producers in our sector and the content they create for Australian and global audiences.

The compounding impacts of these cuts will affect innovation and the global competitiveness of the Australian screen production industry. Screen Producers Australia will be working tirelessly in this 2016 election year to ensure that the cuts are stopped and that sufficient and transparent funding is restored.
