Entries open for Show Me Shorts Festival

Posted Wednesday 19 Feb 2020

Show Me Shorts is looking for short films 2-20 minutes long, from Aotearoa and around the globe. New Zealand music videos between 1-10 minutes long are also invited to submit. Short films can be any genre; SMS accepts animation, documentary, comedy, horror, drama and everything in between, however there is a preference for cinematic narrative-style films with strong audience appeal, as well as films that are making their premiere in our festival.

Here are the deadlines you'll need to know:
Earlybird Deadline: 1 April, 2020
Regular Deadline: 1 May, 2020
Late Deadline: 1 June, 2020
Extended Deadline: 1 July, 2020

The 2020 Show Me Shorts Festival will take place from 3-25 October 2020 at more than 25 cinemas nationwide.

Give members a BOOST for Loading Docs projects

Posted Wednesday 19 Feb 2020

We were thrilled to hear that not only are all the Loading Docs teams are women, but four of them are members!  The filmmaking teams must first raise $2,500 on homegrown website Boosted.co.nz to unlock further funding from Loading Docs. It's an all or nothing campaign running until 11 March - if they don't raise the funds the documentary won't get made. Read below about each WIFT member's project and please do donate to their campaigns if you can - every little bit helps!
