Filming in New Zealand

Share this:

The New Zealand film industry is vibrant and world-renowned.  It is famous for its filmmakers, post production and digital effects, set, costume and prop design, locations and can-do attitude.

We are the authority responsible for approving film and television projects as official co-productions under the various treaties the New Zealand Government has entered into over recent years.  We are also responsible for certifying New Zealand films for tax purposes and administering the Government's New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) and its predecessors the Large Budget Screen Production Grant and the Screen Production Incentive Fund.

We also support and work closely with Film New Zealand - New Zealand's international film business agency and locations office.  Film NZ can provide extra information about the logistics of filming in New Zealand.
