Commonwealth Shorts is a capacity building scheme to give emerging writers/directors the opportunity to make a film which highlights issues affecting them and their communities.
The 2013 scheme had two main partners B3 Media, our production partner and CBA Worldview, which provided part-funding for the project.
B3 Media is an award-winning media arts network that helps artists and ﬁlm-makers develop, produce and distribute their work, from conception through to screening and beyond.
CBA Worldview is a CBA (Commonwealth Broadcasting Association) Project that aims to improve UK public understanding and awareness of the developing world via the mainstream broadcast and digital media.
Documentary NZ Trust, the New Zealand Film Commission and the Auckland University of Technology all worked with Commonwealth Writers on Pacific Voices in 2013, a workshop to explore how to take Pacific stories to a wider global audience.
