Screen Producers Australia to deliver 2021 conference and content market program online
Screen Producers Australia has announced that its upcoming Screen Forever conference will be pivoting to a digital offering from 16th to 18th February 2021.
Assisted by Screen Forever’s interactive digital platform, delegates will have increased chances to do business with a greater range of national and international industry leaders than ever before. Recognised as contributing to over $100 million in deals for local screen businesses each year, SPA Connect’s Ready, Steady, Pitch! and Screenrights’ Roundtables will now run across all three days of the digital event, presenting further opportunities for networking and deal making.
The full program of engaging and inspiring panel and keynote sessions will also be broadcast via the digital platform for delegates to watch, participate in Q&As and engage with ongoing conversations with peers.
Advising of the move online, Screen Producers Australia (SPA) Chief Executive, Matthew Deaner stated “given the current environment and the need to prioritise the health and safety of our industry and the wider community, we are committing to cultivate business opportunities and connections for Australia’s screen practitioners through the establishment of Screen Forever’s new interactive digital platform.
“I would like to thank our partners - especially Principal Partner Screen Queensland - for adapting with us through this ever-changing environment. Thank you also to the outstanding speakers, moderators and producers who are committing their valuable time and knowledge to helping us build such a strong and vital program for the industry. We look forward to announcing more of our incredible program and market hosts in the upcoming weeks.
“We will continue to work with the sector over the coming weeks as we bring Australia’s premier screen industry event to life online and look forward to welcoming the screen production community to our new home at the Gold Coast in the near future.”
Supporting the decision to transition Screen Forever to digital delivery, Screen Queensland Chief Executive, Kylie Munnich stated “although we are disappointed not to be able to welcome Australia’s screen industry in-person to the Gold Coast for Screen Forever next month, we respect the decision to migrate the conference online for everyone’s safety and wellbeing.
“We are confident SPA will deliver a compelling, conversation-starting program, boasting a strong line up of Australian and international producers, broadcasters, distributors and screen practitioners.
“Equally, we look forward to showcasing everything that Queensland has to offer in terms of locations, facilities, crew and creative capabilities.”
The Queensland Government and Screen Queensland are the Principal Partner of Screen Forever.
