Kōpere Hou - Fresh Shorts

Kōpere Hou -  Fresh Shorts identifies and nurtures the next generation of New Zealand filmmakers. Script to Screen is working in partnership with NZFC to deliver the Fresh Shorts programme.

APPLICATION INFO

Kōpere Hou –  Fresh Shorts is an NZFC initiative run in partnership with Script to Screen. Six teams will be selected to receive up to $15,000 to make a short film. As part of the Kōpere Hou –  Fresh Shorts development process, teams are supported to attend a workshop and to receive mentorship prior to making their film. Short films remain an important part of career progression for new and emerging filmmakers and are a valuable stepping stone to long-form storytelling.
