Posted Sunday 10 Nov 2019

Take a bow, Wellingtonions! Your city has just been named an official City of Film by UNESCO, joining just 17 other cities that hold the prestigious designation. Part of UNESCO's Creative Cities network, Wellington was one of 66 new cities to join the 246-strong network which recognises cities that put emphasis on developing their creative sectors within music, arts and folk crafts, design, cinema, literature, digital arts or gastronomy. Wellington joined this year's other Cities of Film, Mumbai (India), Potsdam (Germany), Valladolid (Spain) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
