Frontseat, Sunday 28th November, 10.45pm TV One

Digital Film versus Film Film: The NZ Film Commission is setting up a new scheme to help develop & fund digital feature films. Self-confessed film snob Emma Robinson O'Brien heads to the SPADA conference to talk to digital film-makers Florian Habicht, Patrick Gillies and Briar March along with visiting digital proponent John Sloss (exec producer of 'Before Sunset', 'The Fog of War' and more) and returns a digital convert.

What to do with Bequests: Jeremy Hansen heads into public galleries, museums and council chambers to find out how they deal with generous bequests from art-lovers that often include cash, but also art-works that the institutions don't necessarily want. He also meets the delightful ceramicist Doreen Blumhardt, who is arranging her bequest to the Dowse Art Museum so that they both get what they want.

Artists & the Civil Unions Bill: And speaking of bequests, relationships and property rights, Oliver Driver debates the implications of the Civil Unions Bill with a panel of artists as the public debate around the right to 'marriage' rages in New Zealand.

Missing Persons & Shrinking Borders: Artist Fiona Jack returns from her Master's degree studies at CalArts in California to install her politically-inclined works about the Merriam-Webster dictionary, missing nationalities and Palestine in the first official exhibition of AUT's brand new gallery, St Paul Street.

Best regards,

The Frontseat Team
