Welcoming a glamorous audience to the event New Zealand High Commissioner Richard Mann said that the New Zealand High Commission is proud to play a part in this final chapter of The Hobbit. Sir Peter Jackson's work which not only pays tribute to the rich imagination of author JRR Tolkien, who was born in Bloemfontein, but it also showcases New Zealand as a stunning location to make films.
