The Blacklist New Zealand Project

Black List New Zealand ProjectSM

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
