Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as numbers will be limited confirming whether you wish to attend Auckland or Wellington and the names of the people attending.
An integrated approach to film financial management for production teams.
This course, run by MoneyPenny, is aimed at emerging producers or experienced producers who want a clearer understanding of the international standards applied to the financial management of films. This 6 hour program is intended to demystify the balance sheet or statement of investors' funds and give producers a clear understanding of how the expectations of the NZFC, the completion guarantors, the lenders and private investors can be met.
Producers are encouraged to attend together with their line producer/production manager and accountant/bookkeeper as this course will show the team how to work together in a more streamlined way.
