Here you can find updates and information on COVID-19, including related Guild or industry announcements.

We will also be sharing news from the www.screenindustrynz.co.nz website, which was launched during Alert Level 4 in March 2020 to act as a one-stop hub for screen-specific information to assist screen producers and industry workers.

Visit ScreenSafe for important COVID-19 Health & Safety documentation and guidance for productions. Each production is required to register with ScreenSafe here – please read about these requirements carefully in the Protocols.
