On 1 December 2016, the Minister for Culture and the Arts, Hon John Day MLA, announced that Screenwest will transition from a Government agency to an independent, not for profit. Formally, Screenwest will convert from an Incorporated Association to a Company Limited By Guarantee (CLBG).
This change will be positive for Screenwest, the screen industry and the community of Western Australia. It will enable Screenwest to be more responsive and flexible to screen industry changes and opportunities, and to more easily form market partnerships and leverage funding from third parties.
The session, with Screenwest Chair Janelle Marr and Chief Executive Ian Booth, will provide information about the structural change.
