City Manager 

Your Taranaki City Manager is Tony Bennett.


Tony Bennett

Having lived in Taranaki for 8 years, Tony loves the creative talent that continues to thrive in the region. This year Tony is taking on the regional manager role for both Taranaki and Hamilton. 

Tony is worlds away from his two decades living in London, in which he ran short film night events and rushed around taking part in 48Hour competitions in the big smoke.

He was the Tropfest NZ 2017 Runner-Up at the beautiful Bowl of Brooklands in New Plymouth, which helped set him up to deliver the best experience for the Taranaki and Waikato 48Hour film-makers.

48Hour films are the gift that keeps on giving; each year they never fail to surprise.
