The New Zealand Film Commission administers incentive and co-production opportunities for both domestic and international screen projects. Qualifying productions are able to apply for grants from both funding sources.

New Zealand Productions are eligible for a cash grant of 40% of qualifying New Zealand production expenditure.

The New Zealand Screen Production Grant (NZSPG) for New Zealand Productions is part of the Government’s screen incentives scheme. Eligible productions can access a cash rebate equivalent to 40% of Qualifying New Zealand Production Expenditure (QNZPE).

International Productions are eligible for a cash grant of 20% of Qualifying New Zealand Production Expenditure

As well as the cash grant of 20% of Qualifying New Zealand Production Expenditure (QNZPE), international productions that can show that their production will bring significant economic benefits to New Zealand, can also get an extra 5% uplift.
