Conversations between key stakeholders in NZ’s documentary eco-system.


Almost a decade ago, as part of a Screen Edge Forum, Doc Edge presented Mind the Gap, a discussion about the state of documentary filmmaking in New Zealand.

Some of the people and organisations taking part in that discussion return to join forces with other stakeholders, filmmakers, and decision-makers, to discuss what’s changed, what opportunities exist, and where to from here.

Participation in the hui is by invitation.

It’s Doc Edge’s intention that the event is an opportunity for inspiring, intelligent conversation, and that action plans and actions can flow from the discussions.

Doc Edge will report on the Hui and its outcomes at the 2021 Doc Edge Forum.

Guests participating in the Hui include:

Amie Mills, NZ On Air
Annabelle Sheehan, NZ Film Commission
Cameron Harland, NZ On Air
Christina Milligan, AUT
