‘Mind the Gap’ was the final session of the recent 3 day Screen Edge Forum event. This lively panel discussion was focused on how to address the gap in documentary funding and development which is affecting the future of documentary production in New Zealand. (I tweeted this session live as Transmedia NZ).
Facilitator: Sumner Burstyn (Cloud South, NZ)
Panellists: Graeme Mason (NZ Film Commission, NZ), Jane Wrightson (NZ On Air, NZ), John Harris (Greenstone Pictures, NZ), Haunui Royal (Maori Television, NZ), Gaylene Preston (Gaylene Preston Productions, NZ), Annie Goldson (SDGNZ, NZ), Dan Shanan, Documentary NZ Trust
Unfortunately the thread seems to run in reverse chronological order, so it makes a lot more sense if you scroll to the bottom of this post and then work your way up.
