This fund is designed to support dramatic feature projects that are at an advanced stage and approaching market readiness.
The identification of audience, packaging, and the potential for marketing the film to that audience are particularly important at this stage.
You must have a production ready script, a clear vision for your project and a plan for financing production. Read the Development Financing Guidelines below for more information.
Applications are considered by NZFC senior managers, the development team and external industry professionals. You'll be contacted as soon as a decision has been made.
