We are the
Vista Foundation

Empowering local talent to build a thriving and sustainable film industry in New Zealand through education, promotion, and a better understanding of film as a business.

The Vista Foundation is a charitable trust committed to supporting programmes ranging from the development of industry vocational skills & passion – to promoting initiatives through which New Zealand films can be produced and exhibited to larger and more broadly-based audiences.

The Foundation will do this by investing in a pathway of programs directly, or in partnership with organisations to grow and support the interest in the art and business of filmmaking in New Zealand.
