Industry faces including Michelle Guthrie, John Edwards, Fiona Cameron, Beverley McGarvey, Matt Deaner and Ian Hogg will debate Australian content at the ACMA-hosted Australian content conversation next week in Sydney.
Also speaking are, Anita Jacoby, Amanda Laing, Helen Kellie, Marc Fennell, Sue Masters, Nick Murray, Chris Oliver-Taylor, Andrew O’Keefe, David Anderson, Sally Riley, Joanne Werner and Deanne Weir.
On the weekend the government announced plans for a content review to be helmed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, Screen Australia and the Department of Communications & the Arts.
“This is very timely,’ said acting ACMA Chairman Richard Bean. ‘In conjunction with the Department of Communications and the Arts and Screen Australia, for two days next week—16-17 May—we’ll be exploring some of the key themes going to the heart of a sustainable audio-visual content industry in Australia.
“The conference will be the starting point for a conversation about how best to ensure that quality Australian content remains a feature of the future media landscape.
“With key decision and policy makers present at the conference, along with producers, creatives, distributors and financiers, this conversation is an early opportunity to inform the review.”
Minister Mitch Fifield will open the conference.
