The NZFC is pleased to announce a partnership with Script to Screen to deliver the Fresh Shorts programme.
The Fresh Shorts programme offers grants of up to $15,000 to six new or emerging filmmaker teams to make a short film. More experienced filmmakers can apply for $90,000 grants through Catalyst He Kauahi.
As part of the Fresh Shorts development process, shortlisted teams of filmmakers will be supported to attend a three-day residential lab, and to receive mentoring while they refine their scripts and proposals. Filmmakers who have attended previous development labs have been overwhelmingly positive about the experience and the NZFC is pleased to be able to continue offering this with Script to Screen.
Short films remain an important part of career progression for new and emerging filmmakers and are a valuable stepping stone to longform storytelling.
Script to Screen has a proven track record developing the craft of storytelling for the screen and the careers of talented individuals, and the NZFC welcome the opportunity to work in partnership with this key industry organisation.
The 2019 round of Fresh Shorts funding will open on 14 June, with online application portal available via either the Script to Screen website, or the NZFC website. Applications close 1pm 19 August.
A Fresh Shorts Facilitator will be appointed to oversee the smooth running of the programme and any enquiries can be directed to email@example.com.
