The State of Play in Victoria in 2021
Film Victoria 2021-2025 Screen Industry Strategic Plan and the AGSC
At the end of 2020, AGSC secretary and Board Member Dale Cornelius met with Ross Hutchens, Head of Screen Industry Programs at Film Victoria, following Film Victoria's consultation with the screen industry for the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.
The meeting covered a number of concerns for Victorian-based screen composers (and many across the country) that Covid and incoming reforms to content legislation and policy, including changes to tax offsets and raising of offset thresholds have compounded.

AGSC's response to Film Victoria's Screen Industry Survey
The AGSC submitted a response to questions for organisations in the Film Victoria Strategic Plan survey at the end of 2020, and called for input from Vicotrian-based members, in early 2021.
Our response was largely informed by the issues we pursued in 2020. These included concerns on screen content reform policies, the diminishing of production due to Covid-19 with the industry shutdown in the first half of the year and Australian screen composers not being used for productions receiving government funding.
