New Zealand’s popularity as an international film making destination means movie buffs are spoiled for choice when it comes to film locations to visit.
Whilst New Zealand has a long history in film making, its resurgence began in the 1970's. The last ten to fifteen years in particular has seen an increase in demand and respect for New Zealand film production; the high point coming with Sir Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003).
Since then, the list of international credits has been rapidly growing. And it's reputed that the success of the New Zealand film industry can be attributed to Kiwi ingenuity, creativity, versatility and innovation.
