Screen Producers Australia Awards finalists announced including The Infinite Man, Downriver & Holding the Man

Screen Producers Australia today announced the finalists in the 15th Screen Producers Australia Awards. The Awards are the primary litmus test of industry excellence, and the only awards voted by production businesses working in the industry.

The Screen Producers Australia Awards celebrate great Australian screen productions; honour the skill, accomplishment, and imagination of our Production Businesses; and aim to increase awareness of the role producers play in creating Australian screen stories.

The Awards recognise excellence in 11 categories of film, television and interactive productions, including the inaugural Short Film Production Award, which is sponsored by Cutting Edge.

“This year we received a record number of entries, highlighting the commercial strength of the current Australian film and television industries. The Awards acknowledge the creation of outstanding screen content across various mediums and the incredible contribution of our Production Businesses,” said our CEO, Matthew Deaner. “We look forward to celebrating with all the finalists and industry in November.”
