Letters of support 

The Screen Industry has been identified by Sunshine Coast Council as an emerging high-value industry for the region. Our abundance of natural assets, flourishing arts and creative community and growing cohort of highly trained screen industry professionals makes the Sunshine Coast an ideal location for film, television and game production. - Andrew Eves-Brown, Head of Economic Development, Sunshine Coast Region Council

I believe the Sunshine Coast is ideally situated to grow our screen industry, with a bounty of natural assets, the necessary infrastructure and knowledgeable individuals willing to contribute. There’s no reason why we cannot compete with any other global screen industry hotspot, potentially bringing thousands of well paid, highly skilled jobs to the region. - Robert Skelton, Member for Nicklin

The film incubator will build the region’s reputation as a film industry hub, help diversify the to the local economy, and has the potential to provide ongoing economic benefit to the COVID-19 hard hit tourism and hospitality industry by attracting more visitors to the area. - Llew O'Brien - Federal Member for Wide Bay

The Sunny Coast Showdown organisers acknowledge the traditional custodians and Elders past, present and emerging, of the Kabi Kabi and Wakka Wakka lands on which we work and live. We further acknowledge, thank and pay our respects to the traditional custodians of the multitude of Indigenous Nations across Australia upon where our concerts and events take place. Always was, always will be.

The Sunny Coast Showdown proudly supports diversity and inclusion
