Our opening session is an exploration of our theme Mana Auaha – Creative Power through the eyes of six creatives in roles integral to the outcome of many Aotearoa films and series you know and love.  

Composer Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper (Shadow in the Cloud, Creamerie), colourist Alana Cotton (The Luminaries, Bellbird), unit stills photographer Kirsty Griffin (The Power of the Dog, The Justice of Bunny King), costume designer Jane Holland (Juniper, Cowboy Bebop), editor Jabez Olssen (The Beatles: Get Back, The Hobbit) and production designer Ra Vincent (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok) will deliver mini-keynotes, sharing insights into their creative process and what Mana Auaha – Creative Power means to them as they help shape a vision to make resonant and distinctive work.
