Emerging Visions

Metro Screen presents the first significant research into talent regeneration in the screen industry.

Following devastating cuts by federal screen agency Screen Australia we will close our doors in December 2015 having provided essential support and development for emerging screen practitioners for more than 34 years.

Metro Screen was the independent filmmakers hub for 34 years. We prided ourselves on letting you find your creative soul mate, take risks, build your teams and define your voice. We facilitated this through project development and funding, practical and creative training, regular filmmaker events and gear, studio and post production facilities.

Our final contribution, was to present the first significant research into talent regeneration in the screen industry.

The landmark research shows that since 2007 federal government support to the screen industry has increased by 90% to $419 million per year (including the Producer Offset), yet targeted federal funds for emerging screen practitioners is set to reduce by 80% to $2 million next year.

The Emerging Visions report aims to inform an appropriate strategic response by the industry to the changing landscape so that the talent of tomorrow is given the time and opportunity to prove itself equitably and sustainably.
