NZ On Air says it has been successful in securing access via the Ministry for Culture and Heritage to unspent funds from last year’s Screen Production Relief Fund. These funds are available through until end of June 2022, acknowledging that we may ping around alert levels for a wee while yet.
These funds are for productions funded through NZ On Air that have been shut down, delayed or constrained by COVID-19.
A reminder about the settings for this fund:
If you wish to apply to the fund please read the Eligibility Criteria first.
It is expected that you will have exhausted all other options before you apply to this fund. NZOA would prefer also to receive just one application per production. Subsequent applications from an individual production will be de-prioritised, behind first-time applicants.
NZOA is currently accepting applications from productions that have a clear path back into production and where the additional funding required can be accurately assessed. Applications will be processed in batches, and we will endeavour to take no more than 3-4 weeks to make funding relief decisions.
If you have questions please contact Glenn Usmar, Associate Head of Funding – Systems.
