The New Zealand Film Commission provides grants, loans, and equity investments to New Zealand filmmakers and businesses to assist in the development and production of feature films and short films.
You will be able to apply for funding from the New Zealand Film Commission if you are a New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or a business registered in New Zealand.
Stay up-to-date with funding deadlines and registration deadlines. You can browse through information or sign-up to our email newsletter.
Looking at how we have funded films on their journey to production helps you to see how films get funded and the various ways we support filmmakers.
We invest in just about every stage of filmmaking. However, your project may also be eligible for funds from other organisations or be better suited to other mediums such as online or television.
