On 16 November, Semi-Permanent – the world-leading multi-disciplinary design conference – makes its Wellington debut at the city’s iconic Embassy Theatre.

From directing Lady Gaga’s music videos to designing typography for the London Olympics 2012, and producing Mad Men’s first pilot to developing a webcast video for indie sensations Arcade Fire, the line up of award-winning international presenters is sure to impress.

Less than a week later, the 20th Screen Production and Development Association (SPADA) conference takes place at Mac’s Function Centre on 22 November.

With a key plenary session by four time BAFTA recipient Robert Thirkell, this two day event is a highlight for anyone involved in the screen production industry.
