Someday Stories is a series of six sustainability-focused short films by emerging young film-makers from Aotearoa New Zealand.
Any genre is welcome - drama, documentary, music video or whatever - and so is live action, animation or a mix of both. The films might be edgy, enchanting, funny, inspiring, reflective, experimental...Together they will spark ideas, stimulate debate and convey important information.
The six films for Someday Stories 6 (2022) are currently in production.
The six films for Series 5 (2021) have now been released and available to veiw on our website as well as online at Stuff, Māori Television On Demand and Radio NZ.
We are planning to open applications for Someday Stories 7 later in 2022. We will be specifically aiming to commission at least one film that conveys te ao Māori and has at least 50% te reo Māori content. We will also be aiming to commission at least one film with Pasifika content.
The initiative is supported by NZ On Air, Te Māngai Pāho and the NZ Film Commission.
