SAFC COVID-19 Support Measures

The SAFC recognises that our industry is feeling the economic impacts of COVID-19. We are committed to being responsive and agile throughout this challenging period and we will advocate for the South Australian screen industry at every level.

At this time, the SAFC has not received additional funding, however we will redirect our remaining funds towards areas where we can have the greatest impact.

Our response measures are guided by our values of service to the South Australian screen industry. We will be: Supportive, Can Do, Trustworthy, Open, Professional and Inclusive – and our response measures have been created from your feedback and suggestions.

This page will be updated regularly. Please also check our COVID-19 FAQ page for other support resources.

Government Support Overview

The SAFC has compiled a list of all available State and Federal Government support programs and initiatives relevant to the SA screen sector into one downloadable document. This PDF will be kept updated as more COVID-19 support measures are announced.

COVID-19 Safe Guidelines for Screen Production

A set of working guidelines to create best practice in COVID-safe production across Australia’s screen sector was released Friday 29 May, 2020. The Australian Screen Production Industry COVID-Safe Guidelines have been developed by an Australian Screen Sector Task Force, made up of 18 organisations and state screen agencies including the SAFC, in consultation with the Commonwealth Department of Health and global law firm Clyde & Co.

COVID-19 Risk Assessment Tool

The SAFC has commissioned Deloitte to create a Risk Assessment Tool to help producers to manage their risk associated with COVID-19. The Tool has been specially developed to assist producers to assess COVID-19 risk management issues for their production, and get cameras rolling again more quickly and easily in conjunction with national COVID-safe guidelines. Download the tool here.

Accessibility Options

The SAFC is committed to supporting increased participation for people from groups under-represented in the screen industry including women, First Nations peoples, practitioners from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds, Deaf or disabled people, LGBTQIA+ communities and screen practitioners from regional and remote areas.
