Be immersed in two days of craft knowledge, industry information and inspiration.

Big Screen Symposium is a two-day event that brings the New Zealand screen industry together to discuss the wide world of film and television. With a stellar line-up of local and international speakers, the event’s informal and inclusive atmosphere makes it the must-attend event for screen practitioners in New Zealand.

Big Screen Symposium upskills, informs and connects screen practitioners of different ages, levels of experience, cultures and areas of craft. It inspires screen practitioners and informs them about what is happening in the Aotearoa screen industry.

This year’s theme is about Stepping into the Unknown |  Te Kai a te Waewae e Kimi 

Stepping into the unknown is a common experience for screen creators. Curiosity about what you don’t yet understand is the beginning of knowing and opens the possibility of transformative change. 

Big Screen Symposium will be held on Fri 5th and Sat 6th April 2024 at the Victory Convention Centre, 98 Beaumont Street, Freemans Bay, Auckland 1010.
