Are you a Moana Pasifika woman with a story to tell? Here's your opportunity to do that! There are only 10 days left to apply for this 15-week course, including a weekend, so you still have time. We know you have wonderful stories to bring to life on screen, yet your voices are rarely heard. It is time to correct this imbalance!
This 15-week programme is designed for female, female-identifying or non-binary people of all ages and
experience who identify as Pasifika and want to write long-form stories for the screen. Whether you have a short story, a short film, a novel, a play, or a great idea, if you are committed to, or tracking towards, making your first feature, this comprehensive course will give you the skills you require to competitively apply for script development funding. An important component of the programme will be integrating Moana Pasifika values of collectivism, reciprocity, respect, family and spirituality to nurture a culturally safe space to develop the scriptwriting skills which can be transferred to existing or future feature film projects
