Lindsay Shelton

Film salesman

After time in print and television news, and nine years commanding the Wellington Film Festival, Shelton began his dream job — selling local films for the New Zealand Film Commission. During a 22 year run as the commission's first marketing director he handled sales for more than 60 feature films, including Goodbye Pork Pie, An Angel at My Table and Once Were Warriors.

Lindsay has maximised the potential for so many New Zealand films and always treats every movie like it's the best. And he doesn't forget the old ones either. Director Roger Donaldson - Onfilm, May 2001
