The Turnbull Government has today released terms of reference for a review into Australian and children’s screen content.
The review was announced as part of the Government’s comprehensive package of reforms to support Australia’s broadcasting sector.
The objective is to provide policy options to Government on the most effective support mechanisms for the Australian production sector. Specifically, mechanisms to support Australian drama, documentary and children’s content and the Australian Screen Production Incentive will be reviewed.
The review will be jointly conducted by the Department of Communications and the Arts, the Australian Communications and Media Authority and Screen Australia to leverage the expertise in all three organisations. It is expected to conclude by the end of 2017.
The Government invites contributions to the review. More information, including the terms of reference, is available at: www.communications.gov.au/contentreview
