Someday Stories


A series of six sustainability-focused short films by emerging young film-makers from Aotearoa New Zealand. 

The six films for Series 5 (2021) have now been released.

The completed films are also available online at StuffMāori Television On Demand and Radio NZ.

The initiative is supported by NZ On AirTe Māngai Pāho and the NZ Film Commission.

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.

For Someday Stories 6, 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.
