NZSPG Criteria for New Zealand Productions: COVID-19 Provisions

0
14


Temporary provisions have been added to the NZSPG Criteria for New Zealand Productions to assist applicants whose productions have been significantly affected by the COVID-19 lockdown.

These provisions recognise that domestic productions have been disrupted by COVID-19 in a way that significantly affects their relationship to the NZSPG. 

These provisions include NZFC and NZSPG Panel discretion around:

  • Application deadlines
  • Expenditure thresholds
  • QNZPE definitions
  • Flexibility around market attachment and non-government funding
  • Flexibility around distribution and
  • The possibility of interim applications

Eligible productions will fall into one of the below categories:

Covid-19 Lockdown Production – meaning a New Zealand Production that had started Principal Photography on or before 21 March 2020, provided the NZPSG Panel is satisfied that Principal Photography was disrupted to a material extent as a direct result of the Covid-19 Lockdown.

Post-Covid-19 Lockdown Production – meaning a New Zealand Production that starts Principal Photography between 14 May 2020 and 31 December 2020.
