Screen industry marches on Canberra to promote local content on TV

Senior film and TV industry representatives will express their concerns over the future of local content regulation on digital multi-channels and pay TV in Canberra tomorrow.

The representatives are calling on the Federal Government to move quickly to implement key recommendations of the Convergence Review relating to Australian content.

The representatives include members of the Screen Producers Association of Australia, the Australian Directors Guild, the Australian Writers Guild and the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance.

In November last year a delegation of film and TV creators visited Canberra to promote the importance of local content.

The Convergence Review was published on 1 May with the decision by the committee not yet announced.

This delegation includes Matchbox Pictures’ producer Penny Chapman, directors Gillian Armstrong and Rowan Woods and screenwriter John Collee.
