Professional Development Funding Decisions
Talent Development Spotlight
The NZFC contributed $5,000 to assist Sophie Henderson with a five-month placement in Melbourne as a Script Coordinator with her mentor, Alice Bell.
The long-running filmmaking competition recently announced an additional incentive for those entering this year’s challenge.
To coincide with this, the NZFC has set-up 48+, a development programme to assist untapped/unknown 48Hours writers. The programme will provide support from story concept through to first draft, all the way through to potential production.
