SPA STATEMENT ON $140m OFFSHORE LOCATION INCENTIVE SCHEME
Screen Producers Australia CEO Matthew Deaner welcomed the Government’s announcement of $140m over four years of additional support for international production in Australia.
“I welcome today’s announcement. SPA has long argued that greater certainty and support should be afforded to international production in Australia. These international productions offer great opportunities for enhancing the industry’s reputation and capability. At least 10 per cent of our workforce is employed on these productions and rely on a robust, solid and successful local industry that has been built up over decades.”
“I now look forward to working with the Government to further its reforms to grow local industry capacity, capability and trade opportunities so we can employ more Australians and make great Australian stories for Australian and international audiences.”
