Cinco Cine Film Productions is an independent television production company that continues to produce award-winning dramas, documentaries and children television programmes. At the helm, is the owner and MD Nicole Hoey and at the heart is a dedicated crew committed to entertainment and education. The arena of independent film production is difficult and requires industry expertise to negotiate - we have been working successfully with government funding agencies such as New Zealand on Air, Ministry of Education, Te Mānga Pāho and Television New Zealand for over 21 years. Cinco Cine brings a fresh approach, based on its kaupapa of commitment to the Māori language and independent quality television shows.
