95 applications were received from Aotearoa screen storytellers including, writers, writer/directors, writer/producers, documentary makers and narrative designers at emerging and mid-career levels. Applicants were matched with a pool of hugely experienced screen storytelling mentors.
All applicants presented a long-form project in development, indicating the support they were seeking from the mentorship. To ensure the best possible match was made mentors were interviewed about the kinds of projects they would be interested in and what they were looking for in a mentee.
