Where is the Eastern Film Alliance?
Te Matau-a-Māui Hawke's Bay and Tairawhiti Gisborne are on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Our eastern border is the Pacific Ocean, to the west we are guarded by mountain ranges and farm lands.
The two main cities in Te Matau-a-Māui Hawke's Bay are Napier and Hastings and have a combined population of around 144,000. There are several smaller towns; Waipukurau and Waipawa to the south and Wairoa to the north of these cities. Most of these areas can be reached within an hour's drive of the central airport in Napier.
Tairawhiti Gisborne (formerly Poverty Bay), is north east of Hawke's Bay and extends to the northern point of the East Coast of the North Island. Gisborne has a population of around 32,000 people and has a popular regional airport servicing the city and small settlements populating the fabulous bays up and down the coast. These include Mahia Peninsula, Hicks Point, Tokomaru Bay and Te Puia Springs.
