New Zealand is a member of the AFCI.
Friday 25th April
New Zealand is a South Pacific country made up of two main islands, the North Island and the South Island, and numerous smaller offshore islands. The range of scenery in New Zealand is unique – from the mangrove-fringed tidal inlets of Northland to the snow capped volcanoes of the Central Plateau, from the forests of the Urewera to the majestic fiords, glaciers and mountains of the south. Plants and animals found nowhere else on earth can be found here.
New Zealand’s compact size means that filmmakers can shoot almost anywhere yet remain in close contact with sophisticated film services and infrastructure. So whether on location at beaches, mountains, lakes or rivers, filmmakers are well served by road and air transport.
The telecommunications network includes the capability for high speed transfer of film content between locations and production facilities in New Zealand and abroad, while rushes or dailies can reach New Zealand labs from the most remote locations.
