Big Screen Symposium Postponed   

Following the announcement made by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday 21 September, we regret to inform that the Big Screen Symposium is postponed. The BSS team is working hard to secure new dates later in 2020.  The postponement is due to the current government restrictions of gatherings up to 100 in Auckland under Alert Level 2. If Auckland must remain at Level 2 the week of October 5, we would not be able to hold the Big Screen Symposium on October 9-10.  READ MORE >
