Production Funding

Back to content top anchor

Production Funding offers production financing for your project.

The funding comes in the form of equity investment - if we invest money in your film then we get a share of any profits made. We do not independently produce films. The New Zealand Film Commission also administers the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) for New Zealand productions, co-productions and  international productions
