A conversation with Industry Experts
We are excited to release our second-panel series as part of Fiji’s Audio-Visual Landscape: a conversation involving experts and agents of our filmmaking industry.
Fiji’s Audio-Visual industry has created numerous jobs for locals and with a growing industry, the demand for local crews has risen over the years. Numerous efforts have been placed to sustainably maintain our local industry whilst keeping Fijians employed and trying to identify the gaps and opportunities in the industry.
