The Blacklist New Zealand Project19 January 2021
The NZFC has partnered with the Black List to introduce the Black List New Zealand Project (BLNZP). This is a one-off fund, designed to foster the creative relationship between writers and producers, and stimulate international opportunities for New Zealand feature films.
The initiative will fund:
Assessment of your feature film script by the Black List’s assessors;
Attendance at a virtual Workshop and Mentorship series designed and hosted by the Black List; and
NZFC Development Financing of up to NZ$25,000.
All submitted projects will receive two written assessments from the Black List.
The BLNZP has two stages.
Assessment - the Black List will assess each submitted script against the assessment criteria in the guidelines. A shortlist of 20 projects will then be assessed by the BLNZP Panel with six projects selected to move to the next stage.
Workshop and Mentorship Series - the Black List will host the filmmakers from each of the six selected projects for a virtual workshop and mentorship series over the course of a month.
