Well, hasn't next month's election become a whole lot more interesting lately?!
Headlines aside, with the 2017 General Election around the corner, it is important for the screen industry and its associated partners to understand the vision and commitment of parties towards facilitating a robust and sustainable economy for the screen industry.
To this end, Film Auckland is assembling the Screen Industry Election Forum for practitioners and associated service economy sectors.
Invited MPs and spokepersons from National, Labour, NZ First, Maori Party and the Greens will be there. Before the event, 4-5 questions will be sent out and each party will respond to the questions. There will be time for questions and answers.
Facilitator: Russell Brown
When: Thursday 24 August, 5-8pm
Where: Industry Connect, 34 Shaddock Street, Eden Terrace, Auckland 1021
Refreshments will be provided and Film Auckland wishes the discussions to be held in a convivial atmosphere (so keep it cordial, people). There is no admission fee but Film Auckland will ask for a gold coin donation.
Register now for your free ticket and find out more about the event on the Film Auckland website.
