Get funding for your short doco for a youth audience

The Rei Foundation and Doc Edge Film Fund are now accepting submissions from New Zealand and international filmmakers. The Fund is a significant opportunity for filmmakers to make a short documentary film for a youth audience. Up to NZ$80,000 (that's about US$50,000) is available to support the production of up to four short documentaries over the next year. From its first round in 2019, the Fund supported James Muir's A Broken Earth, Jess Feast's Rise, and Morgan Leary's We Rock, all of which premiered in the 2020 Doc Edge Festival. The Fund accepts applications from filmmakers around the world until 31 August, 2020 (NZ time).

Catch The Turn Of The Screw in Wellington and Auckland

Turn of the screw

Support a fellow Wifter and go along to see the horror film The Turn Of The Screw. Produced by Nicola Peeperkorn and Emma Beale and fresh from its run at The Shanghai International Film Festival, The Turn Of The Screw is a film adaptation of the classic Henry James ghost story, but set in present-day Wellington. Actress Julia (played by Greer Phillips) is a last-minute replacement for another actress at the dress rehearsal of a stage play version of The Turn of the Screw, set in 1890. As she interacts with the other characters and the story becomes increasingly terrifying, she begins to believe that not only is the fictitious house haunted� but also the theatre itself!
