Asian Writer's take the stage and come out in full force

This month, three New Asian Writers were chosen by PAT and the New Zealand Film Commission to take part in ongoing mentoring for their latest screenplays in development.

As part of Fresh off the Page monthly playreadings, three scripts from almost 30 submissions from Asian writers were announced at the playreading live at The Basement.

We are proud to announce:

Nahyeon Lee, Mayen Mehta and Hweiling Ow

as the recipients for the ongoing mentorship programme!

We were so impressed with the amount of submissions and the diversity in form, style and theme! PAT will be reaching out to the writers who submitted in the coming months for feedback to help further these amazing projects. Stay tuned!

Thanks to the Basement Theatre, NZFC and Albert Eden Community Trust.
