The New Zealand Film Commission has issued a document for consultation on the Premium Productions for International Audiences fund ($50 million premium drama fund) across FY21-FY22, which is designed to support the production of high-quality feature films or series dramas that tell strong New Zealand stories with international appeal.
The Fund is a jointly administered initiative between NZFC and NZ On Air, developed in partnership with Te Māngai Pāho.
They have requested that all feedback be channeled through the industry guilds. DEGNZ is collating feedback and ask that you send yours, if you have any, to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of business day this Friday 30 October.
NZFC is holding a public webinar today to brief the industry on the document and to answer any questions that arise. The webinar info:
