South Shorts 2023 is open for applications

Here's another opportunity for writers! The South Shorts Mentorship programme supports new and emerging screenwriters from the South Auckland community to develop their short film scripts. Participants are led through focused script development over a six-month period under the guidance of experienced screenwriting mentors, and leave the programme with a completed short film script and practical tools to develop their own work.

During this six-month programme, the participants attend a series of one-day hubs, held on a Saturday. The hub days involve script read-throughs, writing exercises and hearing from guest speakers about their experiences making films.

This initiative is intended for people who either live in South Auckland or are connected to the South Auckland community - maybe you grew up there, have whānau there, have worked there for years or feel connected to the community in some way.

Applications close Monday 5 December, 1pm.

Notification of outcome: mid January 2023.
