Oz screen producers to gather

The Aussie production industry will focus on pay-TV, local content regs, international co-production and the Asian market when it comes together Nov. 26- 28 for the Screen Production Assn. of Australia’s annual conference.

This year’s meet–the seventh of its kind–is being held, for the first time, in Australia’s capital city, Canberra.

Better still, the convention’s venue, the Hyatt, is just down the road from Parliament House.

It’s hoped the Canberra presence will help attract extra political interest, particularly to the industry’s concerns over the delayed introduction of pay-TV and what local content levels it will have, as well as ongoing support for government funding bodies such as the Film Finance Corp.

The SPAA conference will attract more than 300 delegates.

Speakers include Ted Childs, managing director of Central Independent TV; Simon Perry, chief exec of British Screen Finance; and Greg Coote, L.A.-based prexy of Village Roadshow Pictures.

Communications Minister Bob Collins will open the conference, which also features more than 50 other speakers.
