The article reports that the government of Australia is set to review the country's film industry funding, tax incentives and grants. The government will also include a planned review of film productions company Film Australia. Arts Minister Rod Kemp said the government was prompted to undertake the review because of the very low and declining level of private sector investment in the industry, which is the major impediment to the long-term viability of Australia's film and television industry.
