Congratulations to the filmmakers selected for Story Camp Aotearoa 2019

Script to Screen is delighted to announce the projects and filmmakers awarded places at Story Camp Aotearoa 2019, an intensive residential lab designed to develop New Zealand feature films. The lab, which takes place in Port Waikato, is tailored to meet the specific development needs of each project.

This year Script to Screen received 60 applications. Three experienced industry practitioners went through a rigorous process, compiled a shortlist of 17 and ultimately selected seven projects to be developed at Story Camp in November. We would like to thank all the filmmakers who applied.
