Cook Government investing in WA's job-creating screen industry

The Cook Government will invest $31.9 million over four years to implement a new screen industry strategy as part of its economic diversification plans, with initiatives that grow the local screen industry and establish Western Australia as a major international and national screen production destination.

The State Government's vision for the future of the industry is outlined in the WA Screen Industry Strategy, which provides a roadmap to coordinate and guide activities in support of the State's screen industry over the next 10 years, creating new local jobs.

The Government has also provided further support for Screenwest with blockbuster funding of $9.2 million in Lotterywest grants for 2023/24 - an increase of $1.5 million compared to the previous year.
