In late March Script to Screen travelled South to participate in the two-day Dunedin Festival of Film and Television Craft and Christchurch’s South Island Film and Television Day. Script to Screen hosted two special Writer’s Rooms on What Makes A Short Film Great? Events were also run by the NZ Writers Guild, the Screen Directors Guild NZ and Women in Film and Television.

At Script to Screen’s Dunedin Writer’s Room screenwriter and producer Christina Milligan talked to filmmaker Patrick Gilles, DP Stephen Downes and NZFC development executive and writer Hone Kouka about short filmmaking at its best.

In Christchurch short film and television drama director Jonathan Brough got filmmakers Gillian Ashurst and Patrick Gilles and DP John Christophels debating what gives some short films such impact.
