Is there a story from your community that you would like to tell through film but don’t know where to start?
Join the emerging filmmakers for a two-day workshop to give you the opportunity to learn what it takes to make a short film.
Five experienced industry professionals will guide you through each stage of the filmmaking process – from the initial concept writing, directing, to the nuts and bolts of production and post-production.

Step One: What do I need to bring to the workshop?
The workshop participants are invited to bring a short story idea with up to three characters and spanning two scenes (can be part of a current film project) to the workshop.
Step Two: What is the Workshop Program over the two-days?
Each story will then be pitched to the group. The group will discuss and select one story to develop during the workshop and turn that into a filmed project.
Step Three -The practical sessions will be split into pre-production // production // post production of the selected story and guided by the mentors.
Workshop participants will break off into groups with guest speakers / industry professionals who will mentor them about their roles and share their experiences and advice them on how to use the equipment needed to make a film.
Once pre-production planning has taken place the crew will re-assemble to shoot the few scenes over the next days.
By the end of the 2-day workshop the group will have developed and completed a short film to screen with a hand on approach mentorship by Industry professionals.
