We support the production of feature films at all budget levels and in all genres.
There are several options for accessing production funding in New Zealand. We do not produce films, but invest directly in production. We offer about $12 million discretionary production financing each year.
We also administer the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) on behalf of the Ministry of Culture and Heritage and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Enterprise. The NZSPG team operates to separate criteria and timelines.
