We are seeking to make some changes to Premiere Shorts.
Please note that the following guidelines refer to last year’s Premiere Shorts funding round. The NZFC does not anticipate accepting applications for Premiere Shorts in 2014. In line with a consultancy paper provided to industry on 7 March 2014, we are currently seeking feedback on a proposed new structure, Premiere Pathways, to replace Premiere Shorts. The deadline for written feedback on this proposition—as part of a larger short film funding review—is 5pm, Friday 28 March 2014. More information is available here.”
In the past we have supported established short form filmmakers to produce top level creative work to enable them to attract international industry attention.
Premiere Shorts selections were administered by industry based Executive Producer groups (EPs) selected by our Board.
