Film scripts sought
THE Short Film Otago Trust has launched a call for scripts, and announced $10,000 of funding for aspiring writers.
The trust supports screendrama in Otago by encouraging writers to develop short film scripts.
The best are guided through a script editing process, and two or three are selected each year for production.
Trust chairman Allan Baddock said Otago was ‘‘woefully underrepresented’’ in the national screen industry.
The round closes on October 1.
