NZFC Launches New Low Budget Short Film Scheme

Posted Wednesday 28 Jul 2010

Earlier this month the NZ Film Commission announced a new low budget short film scheme for up-and-coming and emerging filmmakers called 'Fresh Shorts' which will be run in-house by the short film team at the NZFC. Fresh Shorts will fund eight $10,000 short films and eight $30,000 short films annually which will be assessed based on the director's experience. The scheme aims to identify the next generation of NZ feature filmmakers by nurturing and inspiring up-and-coming talent. Applications open Wednesday 28th July and close Friday 8th October 2010.
