Short Film Talks

Interested in learning more about short film making?

Hear from three top filmmakers as they each screen one of their films and discuss how they made it, in a facilitated Q&A. A range of topics are covered, such as: finding collaborators; funding and budgeting; script development; challenges for directors; post production; and other tips for aspiring filmmakers.

Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve already made heaps of films or are just curious to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes.

“Show Me Shorts has been a way for me to experience upcoming NZ cinema at its youthful energetic start. Experiencing stories that have inspired me to continue my own NZ cinematic pursuits. The Short Film Talks are a large part of this inspiration.” – Leigh Elford, audience member 2015
