Film and TV industry arrivals to New Zealand to top 200


More than 200 film and TV production workers will have arrived in New Zealand by the end of the year, despite border restrictions.

‘Avatar’ and the ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV series among others will be filmed in New Zealand during 2020-2021. 

These productions were granted exceptions on the basis that they will inject about $400 million into the New Zealand economy and directly employ up to 3000 New Zealanders.”

The New Zealand Film Commission said the productions would do many shoots on location, which would help spread the benefits around the country.
