Top of the South Film Productions was established in 2015 and is a collective group of passionate filmmakers from the Nelson, Marlborough and Golden Bay regions. We are an Incorporated Society established to help filmmakers collaborate and network with other filmmakers from the Top of the South region to produce great films.
