Award Winning UK Documentary Series Set To Inspire NZ Students

Dream Catchers, produced and directed by Hilary Timmins celebrates the success stories of more than thirty inspirational New Zealanders making an impact in the United Kingdom. Exploring the inherently Kiwi traits that helped them reach their goals, the series offers insights into why there are so many high achieving New Zealanders and highlights the career journey of those featured.

 “Dream Catchers is an important social, educational and historical record exploring the distinct qualities successful New Zealanders possess and what it is about them that makes them stand out from the crowd.”

Hilary Timmins

Working in association with Careers and Transition Education New Zealand (, Dream Catchers is being distributed as an educational resource and motivational tool to be used by careers advisors throughout New Zealand to encourage our young people to reach for their dreams whether at home or as part of our global whānau.

“The Focus of CATE is on the career education and development of youth and their transition from school into the wider world of employment, training and/or further education. By linking with Dream Catchers, CATE is able to demonstrate and showcase that Kiwis can fly! The Dream Catchers stories will be inspirational for the young people of Aotearoa New Zealand.”
