Check it out! As always, the BSS programme features leading talent from across the screen industry.
Highlights this year include:
Neil Gaiman, From Writer To Showrunner
Neil Gaiman’s extensive and groundbreaking writing career includes beloved works of fiction, comics, radio drama, film, and series.
This conversation will cover recent adaptations, adapting his stories into live-action series; bringing worlds and characters he created in the past into the present; and steering these projects in his role as showrunner.
NZFC plenary session
The team will outline the New Zealand Film Commission's focus on supporting the industry through COVID-19, re-engaging internationally, and adopting a strategic approach to change.
Sustainable Productions with Greenlit
What is the environmental impact of the film industry? How can our industry participate in meeting local and international carbon reduction targets? How can we reduce waste in the screen sector? Three leading practitioners from the film and sustainability space in Aotearoa will shed light on these questions and provide practical tools and information on how we can lift our sustainability game as an industry.
Story Techniques from the World of Games and VR
This stimulating session delves into the similarities and differences between the storytelling requirements of each medium, and what practitioners can learn from each other. Join our panelists to hear what they have learnt from working in different mediums and what opportunities there are to cross over.
Plus, there are more details will follow about a session with Toa Fraser, discussions on weaving the future of Māori storytelling, the Screen Industry Workers Bill, the NZFC Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, two very special case studies, and the much-loved Sneak Previews!
