Mere weeks after the NSW government announced it would cut red tape to encourage more film production in the state, the NSW Film and Television Office has invited the industry to discuss its own future direction.
In an announcement yesterday, the FTO called for “vigorous discussion” about its future role, as part of its strategic planning process initiated by the planning workshop in November last year.
“[We have] issued a document entitled FTO – A New Direction. Industry Discussion Paper, March 2008 and the FTO Board looks forward to industry feedback,” it said.
“This follows the two-day Strategic Planning Workshop in late November, 2007 attended by around 65 stakeholders, which was led by Doug Macnamara of the International Institute for Television Leadership.”
The Institute will work with FTO Management to develop specific strategies and action items, along with resource implications for consideration within the organisation.
