AIDA Supports:

Creative Content Australia's (CCA) consumer campaign ‘Say No to Piracy’ celebrates Australian creativity and innovation in the screen industries and shows the vast array of behind-the-scenes professionals it takes to make screen content.

It highlights some of the best Australian films and TV shows of recent years, including excerpts from RED DOG, HACKSAW RIDGE, THE DRESSMAKER, PAPER PLANES and LION.

Those films follow on from the long tradition of great Australian content – films such as GALLIPOLI, CROCODILE DUNDEE, BABE and MURIEL’S WEDDING. Piracy discourages investment in the creative industry and the future of Australian screen content is under threat if revenue continues to be diminished by online theft.
