Submissions due: 18 December 2022, 11:59pm

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage are seeking feedback on proposed options to lift the value of government’s investment in the New Zealand Screen Production Grant.

This consultation is seeking public input on how New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) settings could be updated to respond to challenges and opportunities facing the screen sector. We want to hear your views about how the NZSPG could be changed to increase economic and cultural value generated for New Zealanders through our investment.

We want to hear your views during this consultation period on the proposals put forward. The options proposed aim to increase the value of government’s investment in the New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG). Particular areas of focus for the proposals include:

  • encouraging a steady pipeline of screen productions to support business growth, sustainable careers and sector resilience,
  • enhancing screen sector skills,
  • supporting the development of compelling and ambitious New Zealand content.

Submissions on the review of government investment in the screen sector close on 18 December 2022. All public feedback provided during the consultation process will be carefully read and considered.

The submissions, alongside further policy analysis, will be used to support final advice to Ministers and Cabinet on any recommended changes to the New Zealand Screen Production Grant. Cabinet decisions supporting any change to the NZSPG will be made by June 2023.

The Government currently invests in a mix of international productions, domestic productions and official co-productions through the NZSPG. In December 2021, joint Ministers announced the Review of Government Investment into the Screen Sector. The Terms of Reference were published to outline the purpose, scope and assumptions underlying the review.
