You can make a difference with just $10

At Show Me Shorts, we love filmmakers. We love their creativity, the way their stories challenge us, inspire us, and bring us together. We love helping them get the global recognition they deserve. But to take their work and our festival to the world stage we need your help.

Your donation can help us achieve our dream to become one of the best little film festivals in the world.

Yes! I want to help our little film festival reach big dreams for short film.

With a your $10 monthly donation we will be able to keep sharing short films through our monthly Short Film Night events, and the free collections available in the Screening Room on our website. We’ll sell more New Zealand short films abroad, put on a bigger and better festival here at home, and provide more workshops and resources for aspiring New Zealand filmmakers.

Feel free to give more than $10 per month, or just make a one-off donation. You can even claim back one third of your donation from the IRD. Here’s how.

Thank you for sharing our dream!
