New Zealand Film Synergy Alpine Symposium

New Zealand Film Synergy Alpine Symposium

September 12th - 14th 2003

This year New Zealand Film Synergy is very proud to conduct its film symposium at the Hermitage Hotel in the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park of New Zealand. This exclusive alpine resort is set in the heart of the mighty New Zealand Southern Alps, in a natural mountain amphitheater at the foot of the rugged yet majestic Aoraki / Mount Cook, New Zealands' tallest mountain

Bringing together a diversity of film industry personnel, this one day symposium will feature presentations and guest speakers, with local and international flavours. Guests will be encouraged to mix and socialize with evening drinks and a gala ball being organized. Numerous opportunities throughout the day will also exist.

Financiers, producers, distributors, project managers, agents, directors, screen writers, actors, co-producers, film related personnel and interested parties are all welcome and invited to attend. This is a unique opportunity to liase, make new contacts, create an impact and learn more about New Zealands' filming industry.

So, cast your thoughts towards the South Island of New Zealand and imagine breathing what we believe to be the cleanest freshest mountain air in the world, be awed by the sheer scale of New Zealands' spectacular scenery and prepare to be educated and entertained.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius
