These guidelines apply to projects that began principal photography on or after 1 July 2021.

They reflect a general reform and include changes to the Producer Offset under the Treasury Laws Amendment (2021 Measures No. 5) Bill 2021.

The main changes are that:

  • the amount of the Producer Offset is 40% for feature films produced for commercial exhibition to the public in cinemas;
  • the amount of the Producer Offset for other eligible projects has increased from 20% to 30%; and
  • the 65-commercial-hour cap has been removed for drama productions.
