Olsberg•SPI to assess the cultural value of the Australian screen sector

Screen Australia has retained SPI to undertake a new project on the cultural value of the Australian screen sector.

The research is part of a wider economic, cultural and social value project that will quantify and articulate what the screen sector contributes to the Australian economy, as well as Australian audiences, taxpayers and the beneficiaries of cultural impact – including fostering social cohesion and international diplomacy.

The report, supported by the newly formed Australian Screen Industry Group, will provide the screen sector and Australian government with an opportunity to help shape future policy settings. The research findings and a screen industry action plan will be launched at a cultural roundtable and showcase event in Canberra on the 21st of June, 2016.
