SEED & SEED ADVANCED Round Two, 2018 opens TODAY

SEED & SEED ADVANCED Round Two, 2018 opens TODAY and you've got until midday on Friday 7 September to get your applications in. Writers - get your drafts ready!

SEED GRANTS

To give the New Zealand screen industry its best chance of success we need strong and new ideas. We need stories that resonate. NZWG believes that our primary storytellers need to be unleashed and offered diverse pathways for developing these stories. Allowing writers space to find their voices will see new and fresh perspectives emerge to enrich the industry and the country.

The goal of these New Zealand Film Commission funded grants is to create an opportunity for writers to create the feature film scripts they believe in. Seed and Seed Advanced provides unencumbered development funding specifically for writers only.

Introduction of Seed Advanced is aimed at reducing competition in the Seed pathway between emerging writers and more experienced writers. Seed Advanced acknowledges experienced writers by offering a higher grant level and flexibility around development costs.

The NZWG Seed grants allow writers to be innovative, brilliant, and to create something they own, just as they see it. A producer is not required to access the grant. The writer must be the rights holder in the work. Whether the work is original or an adaptation, the writer must hold and maintain the rights in the work when entering and while they are a current recipient of a grant.


NZWG is accepting online applications only for Seed and Seed Advanced.

Go to www.nzwg.org.nz/seed-grants for further info, downloadable Guides for bothSeed and Seed Advanced and to apply online via the big blue buttons at the top of the Seed Grants page on the NZWG website.
