ABOUT THE SURVEY

In May 2018, Raising Films Australia launched a national survey in collaboration with the University of Technology, Sydney to explore the experiences and needs of parents and carers working in the Australian screen industry. The survey received overwhelming support with over 600 respondents and these are currently being analysed with a full report to be released in mid-late 2018. The survey will draw data to inform strategies and policy changes to create more family friendly workplaces and support workers in the industry to better fulfil their work and caring commitments.
 
With many aspects of industry working conditions such as ad-hoc and long hours, remote locations and unpredictable income at odds with regular family life, the survey is a call out to industry to use the data to look for solutions to ensure a sustainable, equitable and more considerate industry for working parents and carers.
 
This survey is based on a 2016 survey released by UK sister organisation Raising Films and was developed for Australia through a collaboration between University of Technology, Sydney and Women in Film and Television (WIFT) NSW with funding support from Create NSW.
 
An additional section was also included in the survey to examine women's experience in the screen industry more broadly. This section contains questions replicated from the Women In Australian Film, Television, Video and Radio Industries surveys commissioned by the Australian Film Commission in 1987 and 1992. This will provide valuable longitudinal statistics to help track the working conditions for women in the Australian screen industry over the past 31 years.
