The article reports on funding changes made by the Australian government in May 2007. These changes included a 20 percent tax rebate on documentaries with an expenditure of $500,000 or more. The government is also planning to merge the FFC, Australian Film Commission and Film Australia into one group. Many people think that this would not work as most Australian documentaries cost between $200,000 and $300,000 to make.
