Screen Forever program now available, and it is lean and clever

Under the pressure of the pandemic, Screen Producers Australia has put together a tight, pungent program for its belated 2020 conference.

The arrival of the major program for Screen Forever, which runs from 16 -18 February 2021, is an important milestone for Screen Producers Australia. It was supposed to be the first edition in Queensland, then became a hybrid online/in-person edition, and finally turned into a fully online event. At least there there was never any doubt that the international guests at least would be Zoomed into the ideas stream. 

As SPA’s Owen Johnston pointed out, ‘We were absolutely determined that we would not go two years without a market.’ The various pitch and meet sessions are still in the conference as the meat and potatoes for many delegates. They will be open for applicants shortly, with perhaps the best list of buyers and financiers that SPA has ever been able to bring together. There will also be chat-rooms and questions using the technology which is now so familiar to conference goers since the pandemic started.
