We want New Zealand films to be seen, valued and enjoyed both here and overseas.
We expect all the films we fund to be seen in New Zealand cinemas.
We know New Zealand films need help going up against international films with far larger audiences. That's why we subsidise film screening materials and can provide a portion of the advertising budget for local films. We also work with producers and distributors to determine release strategies that maximise audience and revenue.
