We offer financial assistance to domestic distributors of independent New Zealand feature films to help maximise the New Zealand domestic theatrical audience.
The amount of the Grant (including whether any Grant is made) is at our absolute discretion. We encourage all applicants to submit applications as early as possible. We may give a provisional indication as to whether there is any reason why we would not provide the Grant based on information provided.
You can apply at any time prior to the release of the film, however, we suggest applications be submitted not later than eight weeks prior to release.
