The Vista Foundation 48Hours are coming to your region to run a half day workshop designed to up-skill filmmakers and a networking event to connect with the local film community.
Filmmakers, creatives and teachers will have the chance to sharpen their short filmmaking skills in preparation for the 2022 Vista Foundation 48 Hours.
This creative workshop will be in 3 parts: The first part is all about producing a film project and will be run by VF48Hours managers Ness Patea and Ruth Korver. In the 2nd part of the workshop, experienced writer Duncan Sarkies will offer some tools for generating story ideas and lead a creative writing workshop. In the third section, we will invite in a local director for a 40-min Q & A session which will be hosted by Dale Corlett from the Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga/ New Zealand Film Commission. We will finish the day with a networking event to meet and connect with local filmmakers and talk film!
Our aim is to bring the Vista Foundation 48Hours to the regions and to provide a professional development opportunity and an experience that will inspire our filmmakers in the regions.
The Vista Foundation 48Hours is the longest-running, and largest short film event in New Zealand. Filmmakers have just 48 hours to write, shoot, and cut a film. Adding to the mayhem, they must also include some random elements in their film, within a given genre. It's a rite of passage and a serious challenge for both first-time filmmakers to experienced directors. This year will mark the 20th year of competition.
The Vista Foundation 48Hours is presented in association with Te Tuma Whakaata Taonga / New Zealand Film Commission.
