The South Australian Government has made changes to the administration of several
government arts organisations to better promote job creation.


The South Australian Film Corporation, the Music Development Office, St Paul’s Creative
Centre, the Jam Factory and the Adelaide Film Festival (including Hybrid World) will now
fall under the Industry and Skills portfolio.

“The State Government is committed to promoting the arts in South Australia and growing
job opportunities in this important sector,” said Minister for Industry and Skills David Pisoni.
“These bodies support creative innovation and industry development and are a natural fit
for Industry and Skills.


“There are enormous opportunities for growth in the creative industries and the State
Government looks forward to working with the sector to create job opportunities and attract
investment.”


Chair of the South Australian Film Corporation, Hon John Hill, welcomed the change.
“The SAFC Board welcomes the SAFC’s inclusion in the Industry portfolio,” said Mr Hill.
“We strongly embrace this new opportunity for the screen industry in South Australia and
the focus it will bring on business development and job creation.”
