Self Financing with Success – Auckland

April 12, 2018, Auckland

6pm Thursday 12 April
Basement Theatre, Lower Greys Ave, Auckland

LIMITED SEATS – MUST RSVP

Following a full house in Wellington, Script to Screen brings Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa’s Talk to his home town.

In 2016 Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa (aka S.Q.S.), released THREE WISE COUSINS which took just under $1million at the NZ Box Office and went on to a successful Australian, USA and Pacific release. Passionate about telling NZ Pasifika stories, in January this year he released his second feature film HIBISCUS & RUTHLESS.

Join Stallone as he talks about the process of making his two self-funded films and the uphill battle of self-distribution. Stallone examines his journey as a first time filmmaker, what he learned along the way, what he would do differently, and his decision to stick to the self-funded route a second time – for better or for worse.

After the Talk, stay and have pizza on Script to Screen.

6 – 7pm: Talk
7 – 8pm: Cash bar & socialising with fellow filmmakers

$5 Koha for those who can afford it

Reserve you seat here

 

Thank you to Auckland Council for their on going support.
