Free Future Filmmakers Workshops

The Vista Foundation 48Hours are coming to your region to run a free half day workshop designed to up-skill filmmakers and a networking event to connect with the local film community.

Filmmakers, creatives and teachers will have the chance to sharpen their short filmmaking skills in preparation for the Vista Foundation 48Hours in 2022.

This creative workshop will be in three parts: the first part is all about producing a film project and will be run by VF48Hours managers and WIFT members Ness Patea and Ruth Korver. In the second part of the workshop, experienced writer Duncan Sarkies will offer some tools for generating story ideas and lead a creative writing workshop. In the third section, we will invite in a local director for a 40-min Q & A session which will be hosted by Dale Corlett from the Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga/ New Zealand Film Commission.

These events are free but you will need to register, as there is a limit on attendees.
