The Film Commission encourages private investment being made available to New Zealand productions. This information sheet outlines the terms of private investment that we find acceptable.

When seeking investment from the Film Commission alongside independently-sourced private investment, it is important that we are comfortable with the terms of that investment. For any productions with Film Commission funding, we must approve the terms of all other investment in the production. This includes independently-sourced private investment. If you intend to seek private investment to finance your production, please contact the Business Affairs team at the earliest opportunity about the likely terms of any proposed private investment.

If you have any queries about this, please email
