If you're intending to make a funding application to the Scripted, Factual, Content Development or Industry Development streams of the NZ Media Fund, read on!
November is the third round of the 2022/2023 financial year and is focused on projects intended for general audiences. Factual, Scripted and Development applications will be accepted as follows, but available funding is constrained:
Factual – applications for the Premier stories, Many Perspectives and Fresh Opportunities streams of the Factual Roadmap will be considered.
Approximately $4m has been allocated for content intended for general audiences.
Scripted – applications for the Sustainable and Newer Storytellers streams of the Scripted Roadmap will be considered.
Approximately $9m has been allocated for content intended for general audiences. This round is open to Drama, Scripted Comedy and Unscripted Comedy (eg. comedy/panel shows) content genres.
Development – both Content (including Diverse Development) and Industry development applications will be considered. However, funding for both streams is limited and applications will have to reach a high bar to be successful. Please see the Development Roadmap.
