Screenwest would like to acknowledge the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We recognise their connections to land, sea and community and pay our respect to their elders past and present. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Indigenous and First Nations peoples today.
