Film Auckland Inc. (FAI), takes an inclusive ‘pan-screen industry’ approach reflecting today’s filmic landscape. FAI supports a robust and vital screen ecology across all screen sectors including film, television, digital content and transmedia, as well as new developing technologies. It also values the associated supporting economic sectors.
The screen industry is a major contributor to Auckland’s economy and a key growth sector identified in the Economic Development Strategy. Production activity alone generates more than $700 million annual gross revenue, and the wider industry injects more than $2 billion into the regional economy.
Auckland’s unique and diverse locations, skilled production personnel (crews, actors, directors, writers etc) and modern screen infrastructure make it an attractive destination for international creative industries.
FAI believes it is important to have an independent industry-run organisation whose purpose is to represent the screen industry for the benefit of all who have an interest in it as well as the wider Auckland community.
Film Auckland Inc is run by an advisory board of experienced industry practitioners. The Film Auckland Board comprises of key industry leaders from across creative and technical practitioners, associated businesses and professions to work to create a healthy sustainable screen ecology within the Auckland region. It prides itself on leading the way in developing, supporting and maintaining the health of the screen industry within Auckland, as well as providing representation and a voice for all sectors of the industry.
