Shortlisted for Fresh Shorts

We extend our congratulations to those shortlisted for Kōpere Hou Fresh Shorts 2023/24! There have been 12 shortlisted projects, and 3 films will go on to be funded!

Script to Screen has said that “each application was read by 3 assessors, and they considered the story, the director's vision, and the team’s ability to complete the film. The assessors took it very seriously and long discussions were had to arrive at these 12 projects.” So, with all that being said, well done on making it to this list! We wish you all the best success.

See below for all shortlisted teams, members highlighted. Keep up the good work!
