According to an article from Stuff.co.nz, Guillermo Del Toro will participate in a Q&A in order to raise funds for a local director.
The film, ROOTS, ROCK AND HARMONY, is to be directed by Palmerston North director Bonnie Slater with a budget of $1.4 million. Slaton need $100,000 to get the film “in-the-can.”
“This is brilliant,” said Slater yesterday. “Guillermo has not done any other event of this kind in New Zealand and believes in the team and the project so much he has signed up to headline the fundraiser.”
The Wellington promotion event will be titled: “An Evening with Guillermo del Toro” and will be held at the Wellington Paramount Theatre on November 11.
