Seed & Seed Advanced

Writers, the deadline for your Seed and Seed Advanced applications is now 12pm 18 April 2023. 

Seed Grants represent an opportunity for writers to be innovative, to be brilliant, and to be excited to create something they own. Seed grants are the home of new and original stories. No constraints on genre, content, characters, location or even the space-time continuum. Remember, you can apply more than once with the same story.

​Seed is for emerging and unproduced writers and Seed Advanced is for writers with more than 90 minutes of credited and produced scripted work.

​The goal of these New Zealand Film Commission funded grants is to create an opportunity for writers to create the feature film scripts they believe in. Seed and Seed Advanced provides unencumbered development funding specifically for writers only. 

​Seed Advanced acknowledges experienced writers by offering a higher grant level and flexibility around development costs.
