Have your say in the Screen Sector Strategy Review

Posted Monday 05 Aug 2019

We hope everyone has heard about the development of a strategic plan for the screen industry, taking us from 2020 to 2030. Here's the first announcement with public consultation dates. We encourage you to reserve a spot for this important hui and make sure you have a voice in the future of our industry! We are a dynamic and innovative sector that is on the precipice of global change, and this hui is an opportunity to hear more about how we got here, who is involved, what we are doing, and where we want to get to with this process. We have opportunities available to us as a result of who we are, where we are and how we work - here's your chance to share your views on how we can maximise those opportunities and thrive as a sector.

For who can't make a hui, or who don't have a hui happening close to them, there will be an online survey link coming out soon, and written submissions will also be accepted - watch this space for details.
