Write Room Wellington is looking for this year’s Producer Intern!

Are you a Wellington-based producer seeking to strengthen your feature film development skills? Apply now for this fantastic opportunity! 

Write Room Wellington is a screenwriter residency programme offered in partnership with Toi Pōneke Arts Centre, the Wellington City Council Aho Tini 2030 Arts, Culture and Creativity Strategy, and Wellington’s Unesco City of Film Programme. It's run by producer Vicky Pope (pictured) and writer/director Rob Sarkies.

Each year an emerging or mid-career Producer is selected to shadow the process of selecting a screenwriter to undertake the 12-week residency at the Toi Pōneke Arts Centre to develop a draft of their feature film screenplay with the support of a group of experienced industry mentors. It’s an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of your own instincts for story, the role of a producer in the creative process, and tools for supporting script development.

This year the Write Room Producer Internship will promote diversity in the industry by focusing on a producer who identifies with an under-represented community in film. A stipend of $2500 will be awarded for the producer internship.
