Do government film subsidies add up? Well, Yes and No...

Do government film subsidies add up? Well, Yes and No... | Filmbelize | Scoop.it

Most people enjoy a movie. But should the government pay for a local screen industry?

 

Since the early 1970s, the answer to that question has been “yes”. Before Phillip Adams and Barry Jones convinced John Gorton to start funding Australians to make movies, the majority of the television and essentially all of the movies consumed by Australians were made overseas. Australia has developed a significant local screen industry since, but it’s been highly dependent on government funding.

 

While successive governments, both conservative and Labor, have trumpeted the value of federal subsidies in creating a “sustainable” local industry, in truth the whole sector is heavily reliant of both regulations, such as local content quotas for television drama, and subsidies for film production, such as the production offset.

 

The best example of the unsustainability of Australian screen is the Film Finance Corporation, a government-owned film funding agency set up in 1988. Unlike Screen Australia and its predecessor, the Australian Film Commission, the FFC was supposedly set up along commercial lines — investing in profitable films and using the proceeds to plough back into the local industry.

 

It didn’t work. By the time the FFC was wound up in 2008 it had invested about $1.345 billion in local productions. It made back only $274 million, for an investment loss of more than $1 billion. As the old saying goes, a billion here, a billion there — pretty soon you’re talking about real money.

In many artforms, small government investments reap huge returns in artistic and social outcomes. But this investment is ultimately taxpayers’ money. As with all government spending, we all have a right to to ask whether that’s money well spent.

 

Labor backbencher Ed Husic made just that point this week, questioning the $21 million being spent on Hollywood feature 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The federal government is spending the money in order to lure a big overseas studio to produce the drama at Sydney’s Fox Studios. Husic publicly wondered whether the money would be better spent on an MRI machine for his local hospital in Sydney’s west.

To the back you can see the Stann Creek Valley denting the foothills of the Maya Mountains. The North Stann Creek River is just visible in the upper half of the right part of the photo. Chocolate brown Havana Creek in the middle of the photo is a flood channel full of fish, shrimp, turtles, birds and an occassional crocodile. The brown along the shore is shallow water - you are seeing the sandy bottom, not muddy water. The white caps are evidence of the NE Trades which blow 80% of the time.

So interesting to learn and read about this exotic rainforest. Hopefully with the help of Belize, this beautiful exotic rainforest will never in the future have animals that are going to be extinct.

Michael Mazo's curator insight, December 13, 2014 8:23 PM

This article gave deep insight into the environment of an exotic rainforest. From unseen vegetation to animals only seen in movies, Central America rainforest is the home to great biodiversity. Belize's geographical positioning on the globe allows for this rainforest to thrive and expand on its wild life. Conservation scientist put certain regulations in effect which prevent individuals from harming the rainforest in any way. Whether its deforestation or poaching, this type of behavior is strictly banned as it should be in all rainforests. Not only is it extremely unique but areas like this are home to many endangered species which we need to preserve.
