Write approximately half a page per idea, clearly explaining the concept and/or outlining the story that you want to develop.  The ideas/stories must be suitable for short films that can be shown on the big screen.

  • A CV or bio
  • A paragraph on what you want to gain from the Short Film Lab
  • A completed Application Cover Sheet

Pay the $15 application fee. You can pay by credit card via the Script to Screen website or email to organise an alternative method of payment.

All documents can be either emailed to, or posted to: Script to Screen, PO Box 147263, Ponsonby, Auckland.

Application deadline: September 9.

Although the Short Film Lab is free, participants will need to be in Auckland for the day of the lab at their own expense.
