Help us create a snapshot of the Northern Rivers screen industry!

As you know, our remit at Screenworks is to support, promote and develop the screen industry in regional, rural and remote Australia – and 2021 has been another bumper year for screen production in the Northern Rivers region in particular.

Now we need YOUR help to create a detailed picture of the economic impact of the creative industries on the Northern Rivers economy – a report that we hope will bring more support and benefits to our sector in the future. 

Working with PPM Economics and Strategy, we’re putting together an Economic Impact Study that will draw up a detailed picture of the current state of the creative industries and practitioners here in the Northern Rivers region.

The more information and data we get back from screen industry workers in the region like you, the more comprehensive a picture we’ll be able to create – so we’re keen to hear from as many of you as possible.

If you work in the screen industry and live in the Northern Rivers, please click on the orange button below to complete the Individual Survey.

If you’re a screen industry employer in the Northern Rivers, please click the blue button below to complete the Employer Survey.

Of course – if you are both, you are welcome to complete both surveys.

Why do we collect this data:

Screenworks has been collecting this type of data for over a decade. We collect screen industry & production data for the Northern Rivers region to help us understand production needs as well as identify existing and potential skills gaps. This data will help us to provide a clear profile of our industry, the growth that we have experienced over recent years, and to understand the future needs of this specific region.

Definition of Northern Rivers region:

The Northern Rivers region includes the Ballina, Byron, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed NSW local government areas.


All information provided as part of these surveys will be kept confidential, compiled with other information received, and only reported in the aggregate.
