John Reid

John Reid made his feature debut with an acclaimed adaptation of Roger Hall play Middle Age Spread. Since then he has directed three more features ranging from raw comedy to moody arthouse pieces, plus a host of television programmes and commercials. Reid went on to become head tutor at Wellington's New Zealand Film and Television School. 

New Zealanders have a thirst to see their own characters on screen.
