Hokianga Filmmaking Project 2017

July 10, 2017 - July 14, 2017, KOHEWHATA MARAE, KAIKOHE

He wānanga mō nga rangatahi ki te mahi kiriata ō Te Tai Tokerau. Nau mai, haere mai

Are you a passionate storyteller who would love to learn about filmmaking?

Script to Screen presents a filmmaking workshop aimed at rangatahi in the Far North region. The workshop includes story-writing, hands-on learning about shooting and acting in scenes.

Join us in the July school holidays for a free five-day workshop that will give you the tools you need to take stories from your community and tell them on screen.

The aim of the workshop is to foster local talent and encourage aspiring filmmakers. The workshop is suitable for ages 15+, and adults of all ages are welcome.

No experience or prior knowledge of filmmaking is necessary – but those with experience are more than welcome and will also benefit from the workshop.

Come along and learn how to make your story come to life through film.


When: 10 -14 July 2017

Where: Kohewhata Marae, 6869 Mangakahia Road, KAIKOHE

Cost: This workshop is free. Koha to cover kai is welcome

Registration: If you would like to attend please RSVP to Sjionel on sjionel@script-to-screen.co.nz or phone 09) 360 5400 to sign up.
