The New Zealand film grant is for all residents of New Zealand. If you are a resident living abroad, you can enter but you must film in New Zealand. This grant is goods and services from heart-felt companies who want to see documentaries made on film that "are unique and make a contribution to society". You will own the rights to this film. From the Heart Productions requests a producer credit and a "thank you credit" on the film to all of the donors, individually.

If you have produced any film, send that on VHS, if not, send us something your cameraman has made on VHS. Mail your application, overview and tapes with a check for $38.00NZ made out to From the Heart Productions.
