This webcast builds on the Commonwealth Shorts project. This was a partnership between Commonwealth WritersB3 Media and the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association / Worldview to give emerging writers / directors the opportunity to make a film which highlighted issues affecting them and their communities. The project culminated in a production lab for five international film makers, plus eight emerging film makers from the wider Pacific region held in Auckland, New Zealand in February 2013.
