As we know the New Zealand Film Industry, particularly Auckland, is facing its biggest downturn ever.
(and its not looking too hot elsewhere in NZ either)
Thanks to a number of factors including the high dollar, uncompetitive tax rebates and a Government who seem happy to sit back and watch the disaster unfold, our multi billion dollar Film Industry is at risk of dissapearing. Many skilled freelance workers are struggling or heading offshore, local businesses are folding or downsizing, it will take years to rebuild if we let it fail.
We want a strong Film Industry for all of New Zealand.
Tell the National Government we need action not excuses, they have had ample time to work out a plan.
Sign the Petition and if you have a moment tell them your views.
