And for newbie filmmakers from the capital, here's some good news: each year the team at VF48Hours gives out seven free registrations to community groups - this year it's the Emerging Wellington Filmmaker's Network! The Vista Foundation 48Hours is New Zealand's largest guerrilla filmmaking competition! You have one weekend to make a short film with your friends/colleagues/willing bystanders...
