Screen Producers Australia Awards & SCREEN FOREVER Gala

Crown Palladium

The Screen Producers Australia Awards is a great opportunity to sit back, be entertained and acknowledge our industry’s success and achievements. The Awards recognise the creation of outstanding screen content by Australian screen businesses and provides a platform to truly celebrate our industry.

Following on from the Awards, the SCREEN FOREVER Gala and entertainment event of the year is your chance to socialise, relax and rub shoulders with industry personalities. You never know who you might bump into. The 16th Screen Producers Australia Awards and SCREEN FOREVER 2016 Gala will take place at the Palladium at Crown in Melbourne on Thursday, 17 November 2016.

The Screen Producers Australia Awards are the primary litmus test of industry excellence, and the only awards voted by production businesses working in the industry, recognising the entirety of the production as opposed to one specific area of specialisation.

Hosted by Stand Up Comedian and Writer, Claire Hooper
