What are NZ distributors looking for?

November 9, 2017, the Basement Theatre, Auckland

Got a script in development?
Have you thought about your audience?

Join us at this Script to Screen Talk and find out what local distributors consider before they take on a project for distribution.

Having a strong script and a great filmmaking team is not enough. Most often, unlocking NZFC production funding depends on a commitment from a local distributor.

Come along to hear from Tony Bald at Paramount Pictures, Andrew Cozens at Madman, Nigel Forsyth at Studio Canal and Kelly Rogers at Rialto Distribution.

Moderator Emma Slade talks to the panelists about what they look for and why, including genre and story elements, team, and at what stage of development they like to get on board.

Be you a writer, director or a producer, if you are developing a feature film project this event is not to be missed!

Thursday 9 November at the Basement Theatre.
Doors open at 5pm. Talk starts at 6:15pm – 7:15pm.
$5 suggested koha. Stay afterwards for pizza on us!
