Big news!

We are excited to launch our brand new initiative for Asian screenwriters - Page to Pitch! 

Proudly Asian Theatre has teamed up with the Pan-Asian Screen Collective to find and foster explosive new ideas from inception to pitch.

We are looking for motivated, aspiring Asian and Pan-Asian screenwriters to take part in a mentorship programme, where we help you write, package and pitch a webseries-flexible idea to commissioners, programmers and producers. Mentoring takes place over 6 months, beginning end of August and concluding in January, and is based in Auckland. We are looking for ongoing, 2 part or more stories, episodes etc, to be released on a web-based platform. We are not looking for one off short films, rather stories that have ongoing components. Pitches could include VR/AR, interactive elements, series with a connecting theme, character, tone etc, 2 or 3 part mini-series or anything else you can dream up!


Aside from no short films, there is no limit to form, style or length. We are looking for innovative stories in content and/or form. We do not have requirements or expectations to deliver ‘cultural’ themes, and no previous experience is necessary. 

Page to Pitch is made possible thanks to generous support from the New Zealand Film Commission.

Fill out the form and submit your draft by 9th August, 5pm to

Email us with any questions!
