The specially selected panel share their views and opinions in response to questions from the audience, made up exclusively of SCREEN FOREVER delegates.

“We are again privileged and grateful to have one of Australia’s foremost discussion programs opening SCREEN FOREVER. As with the past two conferences, Q&A will get SCREEN FOREVER delegates ‘thinking, talking and debating’ about the most important topics affecting our industry” said Matthew Deaner, CEO, Screen Producers Australia.

Deaner added, “this year’s panel is ideally suited to explore issues such as diversity, international trends and experiences, the role of government, audience fragmentation and trends, new market entrants and financing models. I expect the session to again set the agenda for SCREEN FOREVER.”
