Big Screen Symposium 2016

Thanks to a wonderful scholarship from the New Zealand Film Commission, our director Louise Tu’u attended this year’s Big Screen Symposium for the first time at the University of Auckland’s Business School.

The last two days have been incredible, filled with game-changing conversations, meetings with old colleagues and new friends and fuel to charge upcoming projects.

Highlights included rapper and actor Awkwafina, performing her hit, “My Vag”, courtesy of keynote speaker Heather Rae’s session, “Decolonising the Screen”, editing pearls from Simon Price, Cliff Curtis’ live demonstration of “sleight of hand” and cinematographer Christopher Doyle’s unforgettable screen work and live performances, especially for his sessions.

Malo le taumafai ia Script to Screen for dreaming and making this phenomenal symposium happen in Niu Sila, New Zealand Film Commission especially Amy Tarleton and Fran Carney, all the sponsors and fantastic speakers and everyone who came and made it an awesome weekend.
