We are committed to the development of New Zealand screen stories and writers.
We support filmmakers to develop a diverse range of projects. We support fresh and innovative ideas that will connect with local and international audiences and attract critical acclaim, as well as further filmmakers' careers and the production companies behind them.
Filmmakers with early ideas may like to apply to the New Zealand Writers' Guild for a Seed Grant.
We support writer/producer teams looking to develop early draft screenplays through our Early Development Fund.
