Policy Committee advisory notes

The ACS Policy Committee

The ACS has an active Policy Committee first formed at the Annual
 General Meeting (AGM) on 16 September 2007, for the purpose of researching and 
formulating policy for the National Executive of the ACS.

The Policy Committee is ready to address policy issues as they arise and to initiate policy discussions as and when necessary. Over the past year, the President has raised several issues with the committee, from cinematographers’ copyright & moral rights, to discussion with Screen Australia, and there are several issues that the committee will need to address in the future.

It remains important for the ACS to have a process in place for addressing any policy issues swiftly as they arise. And in the coming years, we hope that we’ll be able to engage more of our members in discussions about issues that will determine the future of our industry.

Policy Committee members

Increasingly, we are aiming to work closely with other industry Guilds to reach 
agreement on policy decisions and on media statements wherever possible.

The ACS Policy Committee encourages all our members to be active on policy issues that will determine the future of cinematographers in Australia and beyond.

Wherever possible we encourage strong, positive debate that enables us to work together and cohesively to create a united viewpoint for all our members.
