Hello SPA members and industry colleagues!
It’s a pleasure to welcome you to Queensland’s Gold Coast, known fondly as Goldywood, for the screen industry’s most-anticipated national conference, SCREEN FOREVER 37.
The Queensland Government, through Screen Queensland, is proud to be the Principal Partner of SCREEN FOREVER — Australia's premiere industry conference where we unite as screen professionals to hear from the best in the business — to share ideas, discuss projects, do deals, and form new partnerships and friendships.
Screen craft is in the DNA of this state. Queensland is simply a great place to make movies, scripted and non-scripted series, documentaries and digital games — with spectacular locations, a wide range of sound stages, highly-skilled crews and heads of department, and great PDV houses. We’re a full-service state, offering end-to-end support, with unbeatable rebates, and a state government that has made the business of screen an absolute priority.
The beating heart of our industry is, of course, you — our producers — the ones who take an idea and run with it, who bring the creative soul of it together, with the team, the finance and the market, bringing it all to life for audiences near and far. Without your nous and determination, we simply wouldn’t have an industry.
Thank you, producers, for all you do, and welcome!
Wishing you a productive and enlightening SCREEN FOREVER 37!
Dr Belinda Burns
ACTING CEO, SCREEN QUEENSLAND
