Ding ding! Round two of the 2019 New Zealand Writers Guild (NZWG) and New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) Seed and Seed Advanced grants pathways is open! The NZWG Seed grants allow writers to be innovative, brilliant, and to create something they own, just as they see it. The Seed Advanced grants acknowledge experienced writers by offering a higher grant level and flexibility around development costs. A number of Seed-funded scripts have gone on to be picked up for investment, win acclaim in the international market, acquire development and even win awards once distributed. The Breaker Upperers by Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami was in the first round of Seed with NZWG in 2014.
