In the final stages of development, funding is often required to push projects over the line into production.
Our advanced development funding options are intended to help producers maximise the chance of securing production funding, both in New Zealand and overseas.
They range from loans for late-stage writer's fees, to financial assistance to help producers travel internationally to engage in the packaging and financing of their projects.
