Hui to focus on the Māori screen industry

Posted Tuesday 05 Mar 2019

If you're interested in, and concerned about the future of film, television and internet content - and we know that you are - then clear a space in your diary for the Ngā Aho Whakaari Hui ā Tau annual conference on Saturday March 16. The Hui-ā-Tau comes at a time of great change for the screen industry and Ngā Aho Whakaari sees this as a crucial time to make plans for the future. NAW chair Hineani Melbourne says it's a "turbulent" time to be working in the Māori screen industry. "This one-day intensive focus on the Māori screen industry is essential if we are to survive and thrive."
Speakers include Larry Parr of Te Māngai Paho, Jane Wrightson of NZ on Air and Annabelle Sheehan of the NZ Film Commission. Topics up for discussion include pitching ideas to market, directing actors, and the cost of keeping news and journalism alive in this click and share world.
When: Saturday 16 March from 9am-7pm
Where: the Hollywood Cinema, 20 St Georges Rd Avondale, Auckland
