Story Camp Aotearoa 2016 is a rigorous five-day residential lab designed to develop New Zealand feature film projects. The lab, which takes place in Port Waikato, is tailored specifically to meet the development needs of the selected writers or writing teams and their project. This year’s mentors include Sundance Institute’s creative advisor Joan Tewkesbury, Sundance Institute’s artistic director Gyula Gazdag and sought-after NZ story consultant Brita McVeigh. More mentors to be announced soon.

We would like to give a warm thanks to everyone who applied this year. Submissions were read blind by four independent readers, who created a competitive shortlist of 13 feature film projects. From this shortlist, eight successful projects were chosen to attend the 2016 lab.

The eight projects and talented local writers/writing teams selected to workshop their feature film scripts this summer at Story Camp Aotearoa are:

 

 

 

BURMA STORY – Yamin Tun

LIFE IN SUBTITLES – Max Currie

LUCKY – Josephine Stewart-Te Whiu
