SPA shocks sector by actually moving Screen Forever to February

Screen Producers Australia, supported by the government of Queensland, is gearing up for a conference with real people next February.

Screen Forever, the Screen Producers Australia annual conference is a November thing. This year its traditional date has created a ‘will they – won’t they’ tussle over whether it will be virtual, or real, or a hybrid or simply impossible for producers to afford. 

So the conference, which has moved to Queensland for the next few years, has colonised a later day in the calendar. It is now running from 16-18 February 2021 at The Star Event Centre Gold Coast, finishing just ten days before the Australian International Documentary Conference kicks into gear half a continent away in Melbourne.
