Emerging filmmakers, it's time to apply for Someday Stories 5, described by NZ On Air as a 'career-making opportunity'! Read the request for proposals at to find out more and to check out the requirements.

There's also a Q&A webinar tonight, click here to find out how to join.

This year the successful teams will have a production budget of up to $10,000 for documentary and up to $15,000 for scripted drama.

The Someday Stories team will be looking for diverse stories including at least one film that has 50% te reo M?ori and at least one from a Pasifika filmmaker or with Pasifika content.

Previous Someday Stories have explored subjects as diverse as harassment, cultural assimilation, body image, housing, and sexual identity. They have been hugely successful in stimulating debate and promoting inclusion, and have attracted large numbers of viewers as well as selection into film festivals.
