& Distribution

Louisa recently completed the Kiriata Publicist Mentor Programme in association with the NZ Film Commission and Ngā Aho Whakaari. Louisa is entrepreneurial and has a range of connections in the Māori and Pacific film production sector. 

I am impressed with her ideas on forming promotional partnerships for her projects and aligning cast with appropriate media and angles.

She successfully gained interviews in mainstream media and navigated a couple of difficult situations with care, ultimately achieving positive outcomes. She has an intense passion for movies and brings a ‘glorious’ enthusiasm to her work, which is a pleasure to be around. I enjoyed her company and look forward to working with her again.

Wairoa Māori Film Festival Director and

NZIFF Ngā Whanaunga Māori & Pasifika Shorts co-curator

Louisa was the publicist for an elite collection of Māori and Pacific short films that screened at the NZ International Film Festival in 2019. She crafted a media engagement plan and social media strategy and delivered on them.

Ngā Whanaunga Māori and Pasifika Shorts is an annual part of NZIFF and this year we had our biggest audiences ever. The media coverage we got via Louisa’s mahi (work) definitely made the difference.


I am happy to highly recommend Louisa and her talents to film makers and media professionals.
