Write Room Wellington Screenwriter 2024

Congratulations to Amelia Addis and Ebed Pohl as the 2024 Wellington Write Room Residents with their project In Alex with Kate Goodwin who will be joining the mentor team as this year’s Producer Intern.

Vicky Pope said “We are always so impressed by the calibre of submissions to this programme and the number of talented screenwriters in Wellington. This screenplay shone as a sophisticated, mature, and distinctive piece of writing with contemporary themes and the potential to be developed towards a production pathway. Amelia and Ebed are an incredible team and we’re so excited to support them via the programme, thanks to the team at Toi Pōneke Arts Centre and Wellington City Council.”

Write Room Wellington is a screenwriter residency programme offered in partnership with Toi Pōneke Arts Centre, and Wellington City Council Aho Tini 2030 Arts, Culture and Creativity Strategy.  Each year a Wellington screenwriter is selected to undertake a 12-week residency to develop a draft of their feature film screenplay with the support of experienced industry mentors. This year’s mentors are Robert Sarkies (Scarfies, Out of the Blue, Consent: The Louise Nicolas Story) and Vicky Pope (Went Up The Hill, Savage, Gardening with Soul).

We wish you all the best with the development!
