We hope you are all safe and well. We are very aware of the stress and strains that many across Aotearoa are under given the current situation with COVID in our communities.

Recently we have become aware of how this is directly impacting some of the filmmaking teams coming in for this round of He Kauahi Catalyst Funding. For those reasons, we are extending the current round for a week until Monday 18 October at 1pm. We hope this extension helps. 

Please note: If you have already submitted your application, you can still access it to update it if you want to up until the new deadline.  

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact Head of Talent Development Dale Corlett (

Kia kaha, Kia haumaru te noho. (Stay safe)
