    Phil Greenstreet is traveling over from California, Rainer Hercher from Germany and Osamu Tsukada from Japan, just to welcome us to the NZCS Awards weekend with this event. 

    They are all very approachable and great guys to talk to over a beer about the latest happenings in cinematography around the workd and get in the mood for the NZCS Awards.

    Free for NZCS members and friends. 

    RSVP required to help with our planning.

    Over 160 entries promise to make this year's NZCS Awards for Cinematography the most exciting yet!

    The extraordinary depth of New Zealand cinematography will be on show, from on-the-spot news, stunning commercials, creative music videos, through to major Hollywood and Netflix productions.

    Join us to celebrate at our very Hollywood glam venue of The Cordis Great Room for a black tie, presentation dinner. This is an occasion to dress up for the premier event on the image-making calendar.

    The charming and accomplished Antonia Prebble will once again lead the evening as our master of ceremonies and the award presentations will be fast paced with lots of time for socialising and catching up with friends and colleagues over dinner and drinks.

    Our guest speaker for the presentation dinner will be Mr. Robert Tapert. Rob is a film and television producer from the United States with more than 50 production credits. He has been involved with New Zealand's screen industry since 1993. 

    The best New Zealand and international screen industry companies are supporting the NZCS Awards and tickets are selling fast so you need to be quick to reserve your place.
