KIWI FILM NIGHT: Taika Waititi
The proposed third screening in the spring series of KIWI FILM NIGHTS 2018 has been postponed until mid-July.
KIWI FILM FEST has been negotiating with the Executive Producer of Taika Waititi’s new film, JOJO RABBIT, to arrange for Taika to do a Q & A after the screening of one of his films.
He is currently shooting JOJO RABBIT in the Czech Republic. However, Taika Waititi was not able to make the 6 June date.
As it is such a special event to have a New Zealand director actually shooting a film in the Czech Republic, it is too good an opportunity to miss. Taika Waititi should be available some time after 10 July to come and do a Q & A after the screening of one of his earlier films, either HUNT FOR THE WILDER PEOPLE (2016) or BOY (2010).
While both films have been screened in Prague in 2016 and 2013 respectively, the director Taika Waititi, has not been present at the screenings so this makes it a unique and special event. Also, his films are well worth a second visit.
We will keep you posted as things develop.
We are currently looking for sponsors to support this event.
The costs are approx.12 000 CZK. This covers the cost of screening rights, shipping of the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) and re-use of subtitles plus subtitle operation. If you are able to help with sponsorship of 1,000 CZK or more, please get in touch with Anežka Novák firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to all those CANZA members and their friends who have supported the two film screenings – PORK PIE on 4 April and the MAORI BATTALION films on 2 May.
A big thank you also to the New Zealand Embassy Berlin, David Chirnside and Hotel Jalta Prague for making the two film screenings possible with their sponsorship.
Announcing the Launch of Australasian Business in Europe
As you may already be aware, we have been working for some time to establish a business focused Australian and New Zealand chamber of commerce
This new organisation, which will compliment CANZA, will be better resourced and will provide support and assistance to CANZA's existing activities. CANZA will continue to focus on social cultural and sporting aspects while ABiE will focus exclusively on business in a much more traditional 'Chamber of Commerce' model.
If you, or your company, are interested in business, check out the ABiE website where you can subscribe to the newsletter and get more information about membership.
Partnership with CNZBA
The CNZBA is dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting reciprocal trade, business and investment between New Zealand and the Czech Republic.
Since its establishment in December 2012, CNZBA has become officially recognized as a bilateral platform helping New Zealand and Czech Republic businesses and business oriented individuals expand their mutual business relations.
The CNZBA is a non-profit membership organisation fostering and protecting interests of its members and prospective members, who recruit from broad range of industries. Membership in the CZNBA is available to every company and individual involved or interested in undertaking trade, investment and/or any other form of legitimate business between New Zealand and the Czech Republic.
The CNZBA works independently, but maintains very good relations with the Czech and New Zealand government delegations and their trade & investment departments.
If you are a Czech business looking to expand into New Zealand (or Australia) or a NZ or Australian business that has recently arrived in town, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Partnership with Czech Cricket
CANZA is delighted to announce that it has formed a partnership with Czech Cricket (Českomoravský Kriketový Svaz). Cricket as a sport and outdoor activity is very popular in both Australia and New Zealand with the national men's and women's teams of both countries performing at the pinnacle of the international game. Through the partnership we will be working on two fronts:
1) to help inform Czech-based Aussies and Kiwis that their time in the Czech Republic does not have to be without cricket, with regular senior and junior tournaments being played
2) to help introduce local Czech people to the Australian and New Zealand pastime and our beloved sport, cricket.
Czech Cricket has been steadily expanding since its formation in Prague in 2000. Czech Cricket coordinates and support local international and Czech State schools towards participation in the Czech Cricket Winter, Spring and Summer tournaments, which have been showing fantastic growth since their introduction in 2012. The expansion of these tournaments alongside the introduction of an additional team in the men’s game and a major facilities development overhaul project mean that 2014 is set to be a fantastic year for cricket in the Czech Republic.
If you or any of your friends, colleagues or relatives are interested in learning more about cricket, please contact info@CzechCricket.cz or for upcoming events, please keep an eye on the Czech Cricket website here www.czechcricket.cz/.
