In June 2020, Screenrights made submissions to the ACCC and to the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications on behalf of our members and stakeholders.
Screenrights is very conscious of the difficult times that our screen and education sectors are facing as a result of the uncertainties around COVID-19. We are thinking about what we can do to support our members who are being impacted by the pandemic.
Screenrights arranged for an independent expert to review the 1999 SASA to determine which of the contracting parties is entitled to receive Screenrights’ royalties for the literary and dramatic work under the agreement.
There will be 1 Authorial Director and 2 General Director vacancies on Screenrights’ Board of Directors at the next AGM, and Screenrights members are invited to vote for candidates to the office of Director on Screenrights' Board.
Screenrights has announced four projects to be funded in the second year of its annual Cultural Fund. The Fund was established in 2018 to support innovative projects that foster the creation and appreciation of screen content in Australia and New Zealand.
Screenrights acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
The Screenrights office is only open to staff from Thursday 19 March 2020, due to COVID-19 arrangements.
