New Zealand has been listed as one of 10 top filming locations by a leading United States film location magazine

The Chief Executive of Film New Zealand, Gisella Carr, says the accolade in P3 Update attests to the great success of New Zealand's film industry in providing appealing locations, along with savvy screen businesses and highly-skilled film workers.

She says it is especially pleasing to see that New Zealand is an economically viable and desirable location for big budget international productions, given the current economic climate.
