Applications for NZFC international co-development fund open

Posted Sunday 04 Aug 2019

Calling all producers! This fund has an annual allocation of $400,000 available on a contestable basis, so get your applications in. The fund will offer two strands: the Series Drama Matched Funding (Series Drama Market Partnerships); and the Feature Film (Official Feature Film Co-Productions). New Zealand producers can apply for matched development funding from the ICF for either a feature film or series drama project. NZFC anticipates that projects applying to either strand will be structured to qualify for the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) for New Zealand Productions and Official Co-Productions either as a) containing significant New Zealand content or b) an official co-production. New Zealand has 18 official co-production treaties, encompassing key film and television industries in Asia and Europe, along with Australia, Canada, Israel and South Africa. In addition to approving official co-productions, the NZFC also administers the NZSPG.
