Call for Entries: Show Me Shorts Film Festival 2020

Show Me Shorts Film Festival is now calling for applications to the 2020 Show Me Shorts Screenwriting Lab.

This is a hothouse mentoring scheme for screenwriters and aspiring screenwriters to workshop new ideas for short films. It’s open to aspiring screenwriters in Aotearoa New Zealand and international applicants too.

We seek writers with bold short film ideas, to submit one script and up to three concepts for consideration.

This Lab includes a full-day workshop with intensive feedback sessions and mentoring. This is a great opportunity for screenwriters to develop their short film concepts and scripts with the guidance and advice of experienced industry mentors.

All the information about applying for the Show Me Shorts Screenwriting Lab is available on our website.



Show Me Shorts Screenwriting Lab is a mentoring scheme for new and emerging screenwriters to work through their bold short film ideas.

Previous participants have described the interactive workshop as “inspiring” and “invaluable”, and many projects have gone on to be funded and produced. Films developed with the assistance of the Lab have premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival (I’m Going to Mum’s), Melbourne International Film Festival (Daniel), NZ International Film Festival (Memory FoamTree) and Show Me Shorts (CharmerZinzanBaby?).
