The Film Commission works closely with a number of key New Zealand Government ministries.
Ministry for Culture and Heritage (MCH)
The Film Commission is a crown entity funded through MCH and administers the New Zealand section of the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) on their behalf.
Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)
The Film Commission administers the International section of the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) on behalf of MBIE. We also work with MBIE's Tourism and Trade and Enterprise divisions to support them in marketing New Zealand, both as a brand and as a destination, through the promotion of New Zealand films.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT)
We work closely with MFAT (and MCH) on co-production treaty negotiations. We also work with MFAT on international screenings of New Zealand films, including at our embassies overseas.
