Script to Screen is proud to award eight filmmakers places on the 2017 FilmUp Mentorship Programme.

FilmUp is our high-end development programme for writers, directors and producers who have already shown considerable talent and tenacity in their work.

Each participant is matched with a filmmaker mentor from NZ or Australia, and will attend a series of hub days that include round tables, workshops, and group work as part of the eight-month programme that is tailored to their individual needs.

This year we are delighted to award two places to already established feature filmmakers, who will work with international mentors.

The participants of the 2017 FilmUp Mentorship Programme are:

Dianne Taylor (senior mentorship)

Florian Habicht (senior mentorship)

Abigail Greenwood

Chantelle Burgoyne

Jamie Lawrence

Jessica Hansell

J. Ollie Lucks

Zia Mandviwalla

See the participants’ biographies here.

We would like to thank all the filmmakers who applied.

FilmUp is made possible with financial assistance from the New Zealand Film Commission.
