The New Zealand Film Commission is launching an annual scholarship program for women. Suggested by acclaimed New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campion, the program will offer multiple scholarships across screen disciplines in which female participation is low. Each year a different filmmaker will promote the program. The inaugural scholarship is the JC CineFem Scholarship for women aspiring to a career as a cinematographer. NZFC and Jane Campion will facilitate an internship with a filmmaker of the designated scholarship recipient’s choosing. Applications close at 5 pm May 1st with the recipient announced within six weeks. For details on criteria and how to apply, see NZFC’s website.
