Good resources for maori in film industry

A great website for maori in the film industry.

"Ngā Aho Whakaari represents the interests of Māori on all issues that affect the business and creative aspects of the screen industry from film to digital new media. Our members include writers, producers, directors, actors, photographers, actors, crew, IT specialists, animators, students, educators etc…

Our name Ngā Aho Whakaari means ‘the strands of many visions’ and encapsulates our representation of the many Māori who work within the industry, the diversity of our productions and the collective aspirations which we have for our people.

We have as our guiding principle, a proverb. ‘E kore te Totara e tu noa i te parae, engari me tu i te wao’ – The Totara does not stand alone on the plane, but stands in the forest. It is a statement which invokes all members and supporters of Ngā Aho Whakaari to work in unity for the betterment of our people, language, customs and prestige."

Perhaps we could use some of these talented maori to help us with our movie.
