Bank of New Zealand Reminds Us to 'Spend Time' This Christmas in Heartwarming New Film
This year has changed the lives of so many New Zealanders, forcing people to look at their spending and themselves. Families have become more important than ever. Everyday people have been forced to make changes in their everyday lives to make ends meet. In light of this, Sweetshop’s Mark Albiston has directed a poignant, family-centric film for BNZ from Colenso BBDO.

The film tells the story of Kiri, who like many Kiwis this year, has had to move back home. It’s Christmas and she likes the feeling of warmth and security, but the unplanned move back to the family home is a tough transition. As she starts to adjust to home with her family after years away, she comes to the realisation of what’s really important.

Mark commented: “This spot is a nice reminder that Christmas isn’t about giving monetary gifts, it’s the thought that counts and we should all be thinking about our family and friends. It’s been a tough year.”


“We loved this script from Colenso." added Kate Roydhouse, executive producer at Sweetshop. "Simplicity was key throughout and Mark has made a wonderfully cinematic, emotive film that will no doubt resonate with all Kiwis.”
