Writing Outstanding Shorts

The deadline for the NZFC Short Film Fund is raising a fever amongst the industry's short film makers so Script to Screen turns up the heat in The Writer’s Room this month for a stellar line up of short film writers including:

David Rittey (Closer, We the Living),
Savage (Watermark, The Speaker) and
Veialu Aila-Unsworth (Blue Willow).

With Closer screening in competition at Cannes, and Kerosene Creek, The Speaker and Blue Willow screening at the Berlin Film Festival, these filmmakers reflect the outstanding achievements of NZ shorts in the international arena.

Come and hear MC, writer and opinionist Te Radar talk with our filmmakers about the process of crafting short film scripts and the experience of taking their stories around the globe.
