Calling all content creators, this one's for you! Script to Screen has partnered with US-based Catalyst Story Institute to give New Zealanders the opportunity to participate in the Storieroad International programme. This programme is focused on discovering content creators and advancing creative careers within the global episodic marketplace.
Catalyst's team of industry professionals will select up to five finalists and 10 semi-finalists from each participating country including New Zealand. Script to Screen will then present the five New Zealand finalists at a local showcase in Auckland in July 2021. The five finalists are also automatically selected to screen at the 2021 Catalyst Content Festival in Duluth, Minnesota.
All finalists and semi-finalists will receive at least one meeting with a US-based industry professional/mentor. Applicants must be developing a series, it can be any genre, length or format and they can be at any stage of development.
Registrations close: 31 March 2021 EST which is 1 April 2021 NZDT
Notification of finalist: early June 2021
