The Star Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Thursday March 30 2017 11 News League club to stub out sideline smoking • By Gabrielle Stuart PARENTS WATCHING from the sidelines at a children’s rugby league tournament this weekend will be asked to stub out their cigarettes. The Rolleston Warriors Rugby League club has a smoke-free stance on all its home games and practices, and plans to enforce it when it hosts Canterbury nursery grade teams in Rolleston this weekend. Club president Nui Ririnui said it banned smoking because it wanted to change rugby league’s image of “bad behaviour.” The club was founded last year, and Mr Ririnui said it wanted to make families the focus. “From the get go from day one, our morals have been smoke-free, alcohol-free and positive sideline behaviour,” he said. Although they put up smokefree signs at every game, he said some smokers lit up anyway. They were asked to leave and finish their cigarette somewhere else. Most had taken it well, he said. “One guy who was a heavy smoker came up to me about a STANCE: Rolleston Warriors Rugby League club president Nui Ririnui plans to enforce a no-smoking policy at a tournament the club is hosting this weekend. ​ week later and gave me a pat on the back. He said, mate, I love what you’re doing,” he said. Mr Ririnui hoped other clubs would make the same stance. “Some people might think, oh yeah, nah, it’s too big a job, but it comes natural to us because this is what we’re about. We’re hoping it inspires some other clubs to go smoke-free because, at the end of the day, these are our kids. They’re our future,” he said. Regional film office raised as way to boost industry • By Bridget Rutherford A REGIONAL film office aimed at bringing more international productions to Canterbury could be re-established. It comes after the city council stopped funding the previous office, Film South, which helped secure location filming for The Chronicles of Narnia, leading to its closure eight years ago. The city council has given a $15,000 grant to the Film Canterbury Charitable Trust to support the research, consultation and development of a business case into whether a film office could be established. City council head of urban design, regeneration and heritage Carolyn Ingles said the money was given out of its creative industries support fund. Film Canterbury spokeswoman Jackie Maw Tolliver said she had been working behind the scenes to establish the office. But she said she could not comment until it had further certainty.

She said the film commission currently worked with Screen Auckland, Screen Wellington, Film Otago Southland and Venture Taranaki.

Canterbury has been the location for a number of movies over the past couple of years, including Z for Zachariah, Slow West The Stolen and The Changeover.
