Script to Screen

Script to Screen’s mandate is to develop the craft and culture of storytelling for the screen in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

We have an extensive programme of events and initiatives for filmmakers, ranging from our grass roots programme of free regional storytelling workshops, to our evening Talks, through to our high-end professional development initiatives, FilmUp and Story Camp Aotearoa.

Script to Screen’s Big Screen Symposium is an annual two-day conference for all those involved in bringing our stories to the screen. The stellar line-up of local and international speakers provokes, informs and inspires. This event is run in partnership with J&A productions and has become the premiere film event of the year and a highlight on the industry calendar. For more information visit
