Past Funding Decisions

Share this:

We want you to be able to see the journey of a film, the way it’s funded and the various ways we support filmmakers.

These records date back to 1988/89 and reflect information published in our Annual Reports. The list is not comprehensive as detail in our Annual Reports was limited in earlier years.  The more recent the year, the more comprehensive the data. We anticipate uploading new funding decisions after each NZFC Board meeting (five times a year).

We have tried to ensure that these records are accurate.  If any records have incorrect information, please let us know and we will endeavour to correct them as quickly as possible.

We recommend reading the Guide to Funding Decisions attached at the bottom of this page before using the data.
