Screenwriting / Film Event At City Cinema

The New Zealand Writers Foundation


The New Zealand Writers Foundation, in partnership with the New Zealand Film Commission, is proud to announce the inaugural New Zealand Screenwriters Laboratory, to be held in February 2002. Find out how you and your feature film script could spend a week sequestered in a retreat location with some of the world's top screenwriters.

Modeled on the labs run by the Sundance Institute, USA, and Moonstone International, UK, this unique system of inspirational mentorship and deep story analysis has been described by former participants as a "life transforming" experience. Because we are looking for great New Zealand stories, we welcome the participation of writers from all storytelling mediums - film, television, theatre, literature, music and new media.
