I always enjoy this image that accompanied Variety’s announcement of NZ’s new International Co-Development Fund, because, thanks to Bluestocking Series, I produced the Complex Female Protagonist cap that Jane Campion wears here!

International Co-Development Fund

The New Zealand Film Commission has established the International Co-Development Fund, to launch on 1 July, with an annual pool of NZ$400,000, providing grants of up to $40,000 for New Zealand filmmakers to work with international partners and develop feature films as official co-productions. If your country has a co-production treaty with New Zealand, think about coming over? (Ireland and Luxembourg have gone one better, with a new women-oriented co-development fund.)
