Emerging film-makers invited to apply for $10,000 grant

The Outlook for Someday invites young film-makers to submit proposals for the third series of Someday Stories, six short films exploring themes of sustainability.


Entries are open now until 13th December, 2018.

Each successful team will have a production budget of up to $10,000 and a mentor from the New Zealand film industry.

Films will be premiered at a red carpet event in Auckland, and shared with audiences via television and online platforms including Māori Television On Demand, Stuff, Radio New Zealand and Thecoconet.tv. They will also be entered into international film festivals.

Previous Someday Stories have explored subjects as diverse as eating disorders, migrant life, gay conversion therapy and healing from family violence. They have been hugely successful in stimulating debate and promoting inclusion, and have attracted large numbers of viewers as well as selection into film festivals.

Film-makers cite their Someday Story experiences as “life-changing”. “This is an opportunity to run a set of 30-plus professionals who believe in you, believe in your project, and trust you,” says Someday Story director Kyan Krumdieck, who has just been named New Film-maker of the Year by SPADA (Screen Production and Development Association). “Being able to prove to them and yourself that you actually can do it is transformational.” Krumdieck’s recently released film, Repugnant, has already been selected as part of the Show Me Shorts sampler collection to be screened around New Zealand and at Scott Base.



Commissioned film-makers will work with The Outlook for Someday team who will oversee the production process.

We anticipate that at least one of the six films will convey te ao Māori and have at least 50 per cent te reo Māori content.

The initiative is supported by NZ On Air, the New Zealand Film Commission and The Body Shop.

“Someday Stories provides a unique opportunity for new talent to be supported and mentored by the industry, helping them to create films that they’re passionate about while tackling very important subjects,” says Dale Corlett, head of talent development at the New Zealand Film Commission. “The NZFC is proud to support Someday Stories again this year.”
