ACMA welcomes Australian content review

The Australian Communications and Media Authority welcomes Communications Minister over the weekend of a review into Australian content.

“This is very timely,” said acting ACMA Chairman Richard Bean. “In conjunction with the Department of Communications and the Arts and Screen Australia, for two days next week—16-17 May—we’ll be exploring some of the key themes going to the heart of a sustainable audio-visual content industry in Australia.

“The conference will be the starting point for a conversation about how best to ensure that quality Australian content remains a feature of the future media landscape.

“With key decision and policy makers present at the conference, along with producers, creatives, distributors and financiers, this conversation is an early opportunity to inform the review.”

The Minister will be opening the conference outlining the government’s approach.

The inaugural Australian content conversation conference is on 16–17 May at the Sydney International Conference Centre.

More than 50 speakers from the major TV networks, key local production houses, online content providers Google and YouTube, and Australian and international government representatives will feature in a series of panels and networking sessions over the two days.

The full speaker line-up, program and how to register for the conference is available on the ACMA website.
