2020 South Shorts Mentorship Programme

The South Shorts Mentoring Programme will start in early 2020 and span across a six-month period. The programme includes five full-day ‘hubs’ where participants get together to workshop and discuss their short film scripts. At the hubs, writers will take part in script read-throughs, get individual script notes from a mentor, do writing exercises, and hear from filmmakers about their experiences making short films. Each participant will also have individual script sessions with a mentor outside of the hub days.

Dates for the South Shorts Mentorship Programme will be set in December 2019. The hub days usually take place on Saturdays, 9 am-5 pm.

“I probably wouldn’t have a project without Script to Screen, because it was at the South Auckland Workshop where I had to pitch, and I hadn’t done that before. Script to Screen is really accessible to anyone and it takes away the “you’ve got to be this and that to make a film”. It makes you realise that anyone can make a film, as long as you have a good story – as cheesy as that sounds. Without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”  

-Vea Mafile’o (Director – For My Father’s Kingdom)

This initiative is intended for people who either live in South Auckland or have a connection with the area and is made possible with assistance from Foundation North.

Applications close Fri 15  November, 5pm, 2019.
