Clear your diaries! On March 25 and 26, WIFT member and celebrated filmmaker Leanne Pooley is running a two-day masterclass in Auckland to share the lessons she's learnt in 25 years as a director.

From initial idea to realising the final film, this seminar will cover every stage of the filmmaking process. A NZ Arts Laureate, Leanne has won many awards for her work and had it screened on many international networks - so there will be plenty to learn for even experienced filmmakers.
