FilmUp Mentorship Programme

Posted Monday 18 Mar 2013

Applications close Thursday March 28 for the new mentorship programme for eight experienced filmmakers.

Ever wished you had access to a more experienced filmmaker to help you take a step up?

If you are a writer, director, or producer with proven talent and feature film projects in development, you could be one of the eight filmmakers to participate in the inaugural  FilmUp Mentorship Programme.

The programme is designed for you to drive your own learning starting by being involved in the selection of your mentor who dedicates 20 hours to you over a six-month period.

FilmUp's introduction day will help you shape a programme specifically for your development, whether that be focused on career, creative process or craft.

Filmmakers who have already made a feature film are eligible and mentors can be based in New Zealand or Australia.

Key Dates

Applications close 28 March at 5pm.

The 20 mentoring hours start after the introduction day and are to be completed by 24 November, 2013.

FilmUp Mentorship Programme is made possible with financial assistance from the NZ Film Commission.
