New Zealand Town Attracts Filmmakers Without Major Marketing

Queenstown, New Zealand said today that it earned $27 million from the film industry last year and expects even higher levels next year. The figure compared with $17 million in 2002. Four years earlier the figure was only $6 million. The Queenstown Lakes District council noted in a report that the steady rise in revenue from filmmaking in the area was accomplished with only a small council staff that devotes just 14 hours a week to attracting production companies.
