About Us
New Zealand’s diverse landscapes and outstanding innovation and creativity are noted by producers and directors as a key factor in the success of their international screen productions. Founded in 1978, the New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) is the government agency helping to grow and support this vibrant film industry and ensure New Zealand screen sector businesses are sustainable and internationally competitive. It invests in original and culturally significant New Zealand films as well as helping talented filmmakers develop their careers and grow audiences for New Zealand films. The agency markets New Zealand's location, facilities, crew and incentives to attract international projects and offers a special enquiry service. In addition, NZFC helps negotiate co-production treaties, administers the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG), the Post, Digital and Visual Effects (PDV) Grant, the 5% Uplift, and certifies official co-productions and New Zealand films for tax purposes.
