NZFC Coming to a town near you!

Posted Monday 16 Nov 2015

Following Dave Gibson's speech at the Big Screen Symposium, and commitment to NZFC staff being more accessible and approachable, NZFC invite you to join Dave Gibson and NZFC staff at industry gatherings in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown in November and December 2015.

These will be informal gatherings where you can meet with NZFC staff and ask them anything. There won't be any speeches or presentations, apart from a brief welcome from Dave. Each gathering will last around three hours and staff will be available throughout this time to discuss whatever it is you want to know.

How it will work is NZFC staff will be in groups - the groups and dates for the North and South Islands gatherings are:


Wellington, Friday 20 November

Auckland, Monday 30 November


Incentives, International and Co-Production

Marketing, Business Affairs, Finance and Film Income

Development and Production

Talent development and International Relations


Dunedin, Wednesday 2 December

Christchurch, Thursday 3 December

Queenstown, Friday 4 December


Incentives, International and Co-Production

Business Affairs, Marketing

Development and Production and Talent Development

Each NZFC group will be stationed at a table and on the day, we will divide the participants  into the same number of groups. The participant groups will rotate around the room to the stations. The intent is that everyone visits every station. Each station visit will last for 45 minutes.
