We missed mentioning in the last issue that Kathleen is one of the 15 filmmakers to be matched with experienced New Zealand filmmakers in the inaugural round of Hunga Taunaki ā Rorohiko, the New Zealand Film Commission's (NZFC) new online mentorship programme. Kathleen will be mentored by writer Briar Grace-Smith to further develop a documentary feature.
