Direct South: Short Film Workshop with Zia Mandviwalla
The Directors & Editors Guild of NZ presents director Zia Mandviwalla in Christchurch on June 26 as part of Direct South, a series of short film workshops for South Island directors.
Short films can showcase your creative voice and align with your long-term career goals.
Join us for a one-day workshop that will dive into the mahi behind Zia Mandvialla’s acclaimed and widely loved short film Night Shift, providing you with practical examples and ideas to inspire you and your projects.
Night Shift premiered at the Festival de Cannes in 2012, before showing at the New York, Melbourne, Sydney, Sundance and Valladolid Film Festivals, amongst others. It was the last New Zealand short film to make it into Cannes and was a Short Film Palme d’Or nominee.
Discussion will include:
- how to work with actors
- how you can develop visual and story ideas leading up to your shoot
- how location influences story
- and more
Lunch, tea and coffee included.
Who’s it for
Short film directors residing in Te Waipounamu South Island – you might be a first-time director or have several under your belt. This workshop series is not tailored to documentary or scriptwriting.
