Find out what NZ distributors are looking for

Posted Saturday 28 Oct 2017

Writers, producers, directors, you won't want to hear this�but, you really need to hear this! Having a strong script and a great filmmaking team is not enough to get your project rolling; most often, securing NZFC production funding depends on a commitment from a local distributor. So Script To Screen has organised a few local industry experts to outline their decision process before taking on a project for distribution. Moderator Emma Slade talks to Tony Bald at Paramount Pictures, Andrew Cozens at Madman, Nigel Forsyth at Studio Canal and Kelly Rogers at Rialto Distribution, about what they look for and why, including genre and story elements, team, and at what stage of development they like to get on board.

When: Thursday 9 November
Where: Auckland's Basement Theatre

Doors open: 5:15pm, talk: 6:15 - 7:15pm $5 suggested koha.
