janda proudly co-owns the Big Screen Symposium, which brings the filmmakers of Aotearoa New Zealand together for debate, discussion, information and inspiration.

The event is for all those who bring our stories to the screen: from directors, writers and producers to musicians, actors and technicians to business people, distributors and film students. It presents a big picture of the world of film and television, a great networking opportunity, and a wealth of insights and information on the pertinent issues facing filmmakers today.

The most recent Big Screen Symposium was held on the 26 & 27 October 2018.

The theme was Tuning into the Zeitgeist, where we explored the forces that influence us both collectively and alone.  This years event was held across two new venues - ASB Waterfront Theatre & GRID AKL.
