2010 Short Film Lab: Call for Applications


Show Me Shorts and Script to Screen are calling for applications for the 2010 Short Film Lab. If you are a budding film writer or writer/director and are developing ideas for short film, then you won’t want to miss this amazing opportunity to take part in our inaugural Short Film Lab. Participants in the workshop will be mentored by experienced industry practitioners who have excelled in short filmmaking, including producer Ainsley Gardiner (Boy, Eagle vs Shark, Two Cars One Night, Tama Tu), writer/director Mark Albiston (Run, The Six Dollar Fifty Man), and screenwriter and academic Shuchi Kothari (Firaaq, Apron Strings, Coffee and Allah).

Up to six writers (or writer/directors) will be selected to workshop their short film ideas during the full-day lab on Saturday 6 November in Auckland. Those selected can come on their own or can bring up to two key creative collaborators along with them. Thanks to the support of the New Zealand Film Commission, participation in the Short Film Lab is free for all selected applicants.*

Interested? Put together a written outline of two to three ideas for short films, send them to us along with a CV/bio and a paragraph on what you want to get out of the Short Film Lab, and pay the $15 application fee. Click here for full application info

Application Deadline: September 10

*Although the Short Film Lab is free, participants will need to be in Auckland for the day of the lab at their own expense.
