New Zealand Screen Production Grant

MEDIA RELEASE
Tuesday, 1 April 2014

From the New Zealand Film Commission and Film New Zealand

New Zealand Screen Production Grant

The New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) and Film New Zealand (FNZ) welcome the New Zealand Screen Production Grant, which comes into effect today.

The Government announced changes to the structure and level of support for screen incentives in December last year.

The new incentive offers a 20 per cent grant for international productions, with an additional 5 per cent available for a small number of productions that can pass a significant economic benefits test. A 40 per cent grant is available for New Zealand productions, and the range that will qualify has been increased, with more flexibility in the definition of a New Zealand production being introduced.

“These changes will mean more international business here while encouraging larger scale New Zealand productions that grow and develop the screen sector’s capability, talent base and intellectual property,” says NZFC Chief Executive Dave Gibson.

“The increased incentive is very welcome, as is the Government’s recognition that attracting film and television production into New Zealand has significant wider benefits for New Zealand, including most recently in our tourism sector,” says Gisella Carr, Chief Executive of FNZ.

Industry members here and overseas have been consulted about the implementation criteria of the new grant, including at meetings held throughout the country early in 2014. Both FNZ and the NZFC want to thank people for their time and valuable contributions.

The NZFC administers the grant. Please see the NZFC website www.nzfilm.co.nz for
- A summary of the key technical changes for both international and New Zealand productions,
- The significant economic benefits guidelines including the points test,
- Initial application forms for the additional five per cent grant for international productions,
- The significant New Zealand content guidelines including the points test,
- Revised provisional application form for New Zealand productions, and
- Visual overviews of the NZSPG
FNZ markets the grants overseas. More information can be found at www.filmnz.com

A joint announcement from the Hon. Christopher Finlayson, Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage, and the Hon. Steven Joyce, Minister for Economic Development, can be found here.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
