Q&A will stage its fourth special event for delegates of the Screen Forever producers’ conference in Melbourne on Tuesday November 20.
Virginia Trioli will host the special event tackling issues facing Australia’s screen industry. While the forum is not for broadcast it still comes with a live Twitter feed.
This year’s panel will comprise Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (Senator for South Australia, Australian Greens Party), Inventor and Futurist Dr Jordan Nguyen (Founder, Psykinetic), Actor Brooke Satchwell (Neighbours, Mr Inbetween), Kim Portrate (CEO, Think TV), Kevin Whyte (Managing Director, Token Group) and Chris Oliver-Taylor (CEO, Fremantle).
“We are thrilled to see Q&A once again reprise its role as the opening act of Screen Forever,” said Matthew Deaner, CEO, Screen Producers Australia. “This year’s panel will no doubt proffer opinions as to the future of screen content – the role of VR and related technologies, the outlook for content quotas and the power of existing and new platforms.”
Q&A also stages a special episode tomorrow night at 8pm on ABC with former PM Malcolm Turnbull.
