What To Watch? Audience Motivation In A Multi-Screen World

Screen Australia Live Webinar

Screen Australia is set to release the results of a comprehensive new research project that will tell us why Australian audiences watch what they watch.  The research will explore how audience motivations vary by distribution point - whether it’s cinema, DVD and Blu-ray, online video, subscription and free-to-air television - as well as by the types of content. Metro Screen is producing the event live so you can tune in to hear the results in real time Thursday 14 June from 3pm. Mark it in the diary log in here and share your thoughts on twitter #W2Watch
