One of contemporary cinema’s most notable filmmakers, New Zealand director, producer and screenwriter Jane Campion, will join us to speak in conversation at this year’s Big Screen Symposium from 10-11 October 2015, at the University of Auckland Business School.

The Big Screen Symposium is New Zealand’s annual premiere film event, where over 400 delegates come together for two days of conversations, workshops, panel discussions and case studies with a stellar line-up of local and international speakers. The theme of this year’s program is ‘Strengthening Our Collaborative Spirit’.

Early bird tickets are on sale now until midnight, Fri 18 September. So get in quick for the best rates, and secure your spot at the biggest industry weekend of the year.

The Big Screen Symposium captures the hearts of the film community.

“It was a wonderful experience for me in every possible way. I was touched by the warmth in which I was received across the board and it was an honour to be there.” – US producer Alix Madigan (Winter’s Bone)

“I was struck by the positive energy of both the speakers and the participants. It reminded me of one of the core reasons why we make films—to share (and experience) a unique point of view.” – 2014 Speaker, AUS director Jennifer Kent (The Babadook)

Come and join your filmmaking peers, and feel a sense of camaraderie as you learn more about your craft and get that injection of inspiration needed to carry your projects through.
