The Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) was formed in 1956 and was originally named the Film and Television Production Association.
SPAA represents Australian independent film and television producers on different issues related to the industry as well as on creative aspects of screen production.
SPAA organises every year the SPAA Conference and the SPAA Fringe, respectively 3 day and 2 day special events that give producers and everyone involved in the Film and TV industry the opportunity to find out what is new in the industry, and increase their knowledge about it and most of all of the network.

“The spiritual kinship between Lincoln and Whitman was founded upon their Americanism, their essential Westernism. Whitman had grown up without much formal education; Lincoln had scarcely any education. One had become the notable poet of the day; one the orator of the Gettsyburg Address. It was inevitable that Whitman as a poet should turn with a feeling of kinship to Lincoln, and even without any association or contact feel that Lincoln was his.”
—Edgar Lee Masters (18691950)
“When producers want to know what the public wants, they graph it as curves. When they want to tell the public what to get, they say it in curves.”
—Marshall McLuhan (19111980)
“Western man represents himself, on the political or psychological stage, in a spectacular world-theater. Our personality is innately cinematic, light-charged projections flickering on the screen of Western consciousness.”
—Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
