With a „PANEL: MADE IN NEW ZEALAND“ the exground filmfest 26 in Wiesbaden presented: Alyx Duncan, Catherine Fitzgerald and Renae Maihi. The three very different film women discussed with German film expert Stefanie Reis the working conditions for filmmakers in New Zealand.
How does film production look like in a country with 4.5 million inhabitants only? Which federal film funding is there and what are the independent alternatives? Are New Zealanders too critical about their own filmmaking? What is the basis for the mutual respect between New Zealanders and Germans?
