Join New Zealand Film Commission CEO Annabelle Sheehan, Head of Development and Production Leanne Saunders, Head of Talent Development Dale Corlett and Head of Incentives Catherine Bates for a live webinar on Wednesday 8 July at 5pm.

The panel will outline the Screen Sector Recovery Package announced by the government last week and provide information about how the funding will be allocated.

The package managed by the NZFC totals $15.4m of capacity funding and production support. The $2m in cultural capability funding will ensure the sector has the necessary industry, technical and business capability to meet the challenges of a post COVID-19 environment. A further $13.4m will support productions that were shut down, delayed or otherwise impacted by COVID-19 restrictions to be completed. There is also a separate $50M fund that will be managed in partnership with NZ On Air to fund New Zealand feature films and series drama for New Zealand and international audiences.

There may be an opportunity for you to ask questions at the end of the session.

See you on Wednesday!
