Screen Australia’s Enterprise scheme contributed to the success of companies like Matchbox Pictures and Porchlight Films, who currently create some of the most compelling content in Australia while growing strong businesses.
What opportunities will our version of the scheme create for our much smaller industry?
Script to Screen hosts a special industry discussion with producers from three of the companies supported by NZ Film Commission’s new Business Development Scheme (BDS).*
Join us to hear producers Matthew Metcalfe (GFC Fightertown), Richard Fletcher (Libertine Pictures) and Victoria Spackman (Gibson Group with Blueskin Films) talk to producer and lecturer Christina Milligan about the challenges they face, the opportunities they see for the New Zealand landscape long-term, and what their creative focus will be going forward.
This is an unmissable opportunity for producers, writers and directors to hear from some of those at the forefront of the film business in NZ. Come and have your BDS questions answered.
Tuesday 31st March, The Loft Q Theatre. Join us for drinks in the lobby at 7pm for a 7.30pm – 9pm talk upstairs (including 30 minutes of question time). $5 koha appreciated.
*The Business Development Scheme (BDS) aims to “grow the screen sector and ensure New Zealand stories can continue to be told while fostering the development of businesses with the scale and connections to attract more private and overseas investment.” Read more on the NZ Film Commission website here.
