We need your help to secure a meaningful future for Australian stories on screen. Minister Paul Fletcher is soon to propose a bill that will negatively impact our industry. 

Join AWG President Shane Brennan and former AWG President Jan Sardi AO on Tuesday 13 April 2021 at 7pm on Zoom to learn how you can help to protect Australian content. NSW Committee Chair Gina Roncoli will conduct the interview. 

AWG continues to fight for the regulation of streaming services, such as Netflix, Stan and Amazon Prime, and aims to block or modify the following changes that will be proposed: 

  • Reduction of feature film producer offset from 40% to 30% (while the TV producer offset will be increased from 20% to 30%)
  • Removal of the feature film Gallipoli clause (which allows feature film producers to claim for expenditure on Australian story elements shot offshore)
  • Increase in minimum expenditure thresholds for feature-length content from $500,000 to $1,000,000 (to be eligible for the producer offset)
  • Reduction in subscription TV’s investment in local content (down from 10% to 5% of its drama expenditure) from 1 July 2021
