  1. Screen Australia is a laughing stock in the industry.

    The fact that he said producers can get 50% of funding with SA investments and grants is a joke, everyone knows it. They only give grants and investments to people who tick the box and is apart of their film club.

    Yea they also have development money for scripts… and who gives notes to those writers? Screen Australia does and they have a heavy hand on everything they touch… no wonder we don’t make great films here because you have idiots with no idea telling Australian filmmakers (who are some of the best in the world) how to make their films. What a joke… SA are all penny counters and failed filmmakers telling our talent what to do and how to do it.

  2. Maybe cinemas should reach out to the public in the way theatre has to raise money at a community level to keep the lights off, but with the potential to turn back on. There must be others like me who will be desperately sad to lose cinema altogether.
