22 June 2022
GFS is pleased to announce it has acquired the rights to take Ewan Wilson’s bestselling autobiographical book Dogfight: The Inside Story of the Kiwi Airlines Collapse to the screen.
GFS CEO Julian Grimmond says “The book is a wonderful story about the Kiwi can-do culture that we all know and appreciate. As content production continues to expand globally, we are excited to be developing this project with Ewan.
“Although GFS predominantly serves an international market,proudly headquartered in Queenstown, New Zealand, and want to use our unique market position to uplift New Zealand stories onto the world stage.”
Ewan Wilson says he has known Grimmond for many years and it felt like a natural partnership to work with GFS to bring his famously courageous Kiwi story to life on the screen.
“Kiwi International Airlines was a story that captured the country’s imagination and hearts. Its low-cost model changed the way New Zealanders and Australians traveled, and put Hamilton and Dunedin on the international flight map. Its subsequent collapse captivated the nation.”
GFS looks forward to producing this insightful story of New Zealand entrepreneurial spirit.
