Amanda Jane Robinson, Ghazaleh Golbakhsh, Morgan Waru, Ainsley Gardiner, Nicole Hoey, Hweiling Ow, Karin Williams, Olivia Shanks, Asuka Sylvie, Chelsea Winstanley and Desray Armstrong.

Story Camp is a residential feature film lab that fosters craft, voice and vision. The lab, which takes place in Port Waikato, is tailored to meet the specific development needs of each project. Nine selected projects with 11 writers and six producers will workshop their feature films over the week with exceptional local advisors, and international advisors who are attending virtually.

Story Camp Programme director Esther Cahill-Chiaroni said the calibre of applications this year surpassed expectations, making the selection process both tough and rewarding for the selectors.
