Fresh Shorts

Applications for Fresh Shorts open once a year around June and close in August. The three day residential development lab takes place in Nov.

APPLICATION INFO

Fresh Shorts is an NZFC initiative now run in partnership with Script to Screen. Selected emerging filmmaker teams attend a 3-day development lab and six go on to receive up to $15,000 to make a short film. As part of the Fresh Shorts development process, shortlisted teams of filmmakers are supported to attend a three-day residential lab, and to receive story and production mentoring to refine their scripts and proposals. After the Lab filmmakers further develop their projects and then re-submit. Following resubmission six projects are selected to receive production funding. Short films remain an important part of career progression for new and emerging filmmakers and are a valuable stepping stone to long-form storytelling.
