“It is a comprehensive and demanding programme, tackling the tough issues that will deliver the means for long-term sustainable growth to this dynamic industry”

“The Screen Council is heartened to see the work it is undertaking in the screen production sector is recognized and welcomes the challenge to continue working on these issues”.

“We’re also very pleased to announce at this time that Rick Ellis (CEO of TVNZ) will be joining the Screen Council board in June. “We are sure he will contribute significantly to the strategic vision of the organization.”
