"The best thing about SCREEN FOREVER is the array of Australian creatives who you find to collaborate with teamed with international powerhouses that come to find great material."
SCREEN FOREVER is a business event for the whole industry, from network executives to government agencies, financiers, commissioners, distributors, production service providers, cast and crew. The event attracts a diverse delegate mix from emerging practitioners to established vanguards. The delegates work across all genres and mediums but are united by their desire to become and remain relevant and competitive in the global market.
For 37 years, SCREEN FOREVER has unlocked opportunities for delegates to connect with other screen industry professionals, turning ideas into a reality.
Delegates will converge on the Gold Coast over three days for unmissable networking events, business meetings, inspiring thought leadership, and the SPA Connect Market. The conference will culminate with the SPA Awards, highlighting industry excellence and accomplishment. With a return to international travel, SPA is expecting the largest assembly of international buyers and partners seen in Australia for many years.
