Film Bop 2022 Annual Report

Excerpt from the Co-Chair Report

“It has been another year of highs and lows as we’ve weathered the impacts of further Covid lockdowns and travel restrictions. However, in a testament to the strength and agility of our local industry, we achieved some great successes this year. Locally filmed Muru was selected as New Zealand’s contender for the 2023 Academy Awards Best International Feature Film category. Our trustee, Paula Jones, was selected for and won the Makers and Shakers award for Initiative to Grow Local Industry for the Tohea on-set training initiative.”
