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.

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.
