The New Zealand Film Commission is a Crown entity that invests in the growth, prosperity and promotion of New Zealand’s film industry, locations, its film makers and their films. We support the Big Screen Symposium as a place of debate, discussion, information and inspiration.
Screen Auckland is the region’s film office and a unit within Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) – a council-controlled organisation and Auckland’s economic growth agency. It supports the region’s $1 billion screen production industry by working with partners to attract productions, by facilitating Auckland Council permits for filming in public places, by managing key studio infrastructure, by advocating for the industry nationally and internationally, and by working with industry to increase skill capability and develop pathways into quality screen jobs.

More than 29,000 students from 150 countries study at AUT across our three campuses in Auckland’s CBD, on the North Shore and in Manukau. We are the second largest university in New Zealand and ranked in the top 2% of universities world-wide. While AUT has a rich institutional history stretching back over 100 years, we have been a university for only 18 years, and this makes our development something of which we can be proud.
