Support the national screen industry campaign for “Australian Screen. Australian Stories”

The Federal Government is considering changes to the Australian Content requirements for television for Australian drama, children’s television and documentaries.

Media reports indicate this may go Cabinet for approval as early as this Monday 11th March.

The proposed changes include a reduction in requirements to screen new Australian drama, children’s television and documentaries. It is anticipated this will lead to a loss of jobs and work for members of the Australian screen industry.
