The Victorian Government has released its first ever gender equality strategy, which was developed in consultation with MEAA members. The strategy acknowledges the vital role the creative industries play in overcoming prevailing attitudes and misrepresentation that lead to gender discrimination.
Congratulations to all the MEAA screen crew members recognised for their craft with a nomination at this year’s Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards.
MEAA is calling on other theatrical producers to follow the example of the Michael Cassel Group in adopting transparent guidelines for the engagement of overseas performers on Australian stages.
MEAA screen technician members have endorsed Warner Bros’ proposed greenfields crew agreement for offshore feature film at meetings held nationally last Thursday. 85% of those attending voted in favour of locking in the deal.
