DEGANZ Emerging Women Filmmakers Incubator

Apply now for this valuable opportunity to further develop as a filmmaker. The Incubator is a talent-focused development programme structured over five one-day workshops across a year. While directors come to the Incubator with a project, the main aim is to provide specific knowledge, skills, connections and inspiration to enable each participant to advance themselves and their careers.

The deadline to apply is 10am Friday 27 January 2023.

The objectives of the Incubator are:

  • Increase the number of women directing features and TV drama.
  • Connect producers, broadcasters, funders and other industry professionals with women directors with a view of getting stories from women’s perspectives into and through development.
  • Create networking opportunities for women directors to further their projects and careers.
  • Inspire and encourage directors to passionately pursue feature film and drama directing careers through interaction with successful women who serve as role models.
  • Improve directors’ understanding of the business of film and television drama.

Participants will attend five one-day workshops across 2023, the first of which is scheduled to take place in March. All workshops are intended to be held in Auckland, and a travel allowance will be available for participants based in other regions.

Applicants must apply with a project; however, the Incubator will be focused primarily on filmmaker development rather than project development.
