Post Quake ChCh Doco to Open in November

Posted Friday 23 Oct 2015

WIFT member Tracy Roe has co-produced (with Peter Young) a stunning, must-see doco called The Art of Recovery. It opens in Auckland cinemas on November 5 and Wellington on November 19.

The premieres are open to the public and WIFT members are encouraged to head along as Tracy would love to see you!

The Art of Recovery is set during the demolition of post-quake Christchurch and follows a dynamic group of artists and entrepreneurs bringing life back to the streets of central city and fighting for a place in its future. Watch the short and be moved by the images and comments of some of the people involved in taking Christchurch back into the hearts and minds of its residents via art, music, dance and events.

THE ART OF RECOVERY OPENS IN AUCKLAND CINEMAS FROM NOVEMBER 5 and WELLINGTON CINEMAS FROM NOVEMBER 19.

New funding guidelines on NZFC website

Posted Friday 23 Oct 2015

Money, money, money - how to source it, apply for it and get your production funded - it's all available now on the NZFC website at http://www.nzfilm.co.nz/funding. Pop this address into your browser and click your way through a comprehensive and up to date page that has all you need to know about funding a film.

All the funds are there, the criteria, the paperwork you have to provide (yawn yes, we know it's not very creative, but when public money is involved there has to be a process) and the all important deadline dates for applications.

SO no excuses for your short film limping along with favours and freebies and promises of a free ticket to a sceening (though we all know those are still useful weapons in the armoury of an independent film makers' war kit).

Get your head around all the details and get that application in! We want 2016 to be the year that WIFT members secure a significant slice of the public funding pie!
