The final production funding round for Te Puna Kairangi will open on Monday 6 December 2021 with a deadline of Tuesday 22 February 2022. 

Updated Premium Production Fund Guidelines, Terms of Trade and Submission checklists are available here.  

Of note, following consultation with the Guilds and others in the screen sector:   

  • the requirement for a minimum of 10% Private International Investment remains the same as previous rounds 
  • we have added considerations relating to the five key objectives to provide greater clarity 

Applications will only be accepted if they are submitted through the portal on the funding page of Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) website before the published deadline. If you have not applied for NZFC funding before you will need to create an account on the portal first. 

A webinar about the round will be held on Wednesday 8 December 5 – 6pm. 
Save the date.
