Regional Creative Development Support

Film Otago Southland is not primarily a production funding agency, but we do have a limited amount of creative development support we're able to provide to regional film projects and regional filmmakers, including our Screenwriters in Residence programme and our Bespoke Creative Development Support grants.

The purpose of these programmes is to support Otago and Southland-based screen projects in their early creative development phase. For a project to be eligible, the majority of the story and/or locations must be set in Otago and/or Southland. We can receive applications for Screenwriters In Residence programme or Creative Development support at any time and applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Full guidelines are available upon request.
