In 2018, as part of the Long Term Economic Development Plan for the Marlborough region, Council entered into a three-year partnership with Screen Wellington to promote Marlborough as a screen destination.
The goal of this partnership is to allow Council to benefit from Screen Wellington’s expertise and experience in the screen industry, in developing a database of filming locations in Marlborough, establishing robust and user-friendly permitting processes, and developing Marlborough-based talent and expertise in various technical aspects of film-making. Screen Wellington also promotes Marlborough as a screen destination locally and internationally, through its established communication channels and attendance at global screen events.
The Screen Marlborough office is located within the Economic Development Unit at Marlborough District Council.
Screen Marlborough collaborates on an ongoing basis with relevant organisations such as the New Zealand Film Commission, Top of the South Film Society and Regional Film Offices of New Zealand.
