The NZFC encourages private investment being made available to New Zealand productions. However, when seeking investment from the NZFC alongside independently-sourced private investment, it is important that we are comfortable with the terms of that investment. See Acceptable Private Investment information sheet below.
For any productions with NZFC funding, we must approve the terms of all other investment in the production – including independently-sourced private investment. If you intend to seek private investment to finance your production, please engage with the Business Affairs team at the earliest opportunity about the likely terms of any proposed private investment.
If you have any queries about this, please email [email protected].
