Luping’s Animated Drama Receives Fresh Shorts Funding

Script to Screen announced the three films selected for the 2024 Kōpere Hou – Fresh Shorts fund. DEGANZ member and current Incubator participant Jo Luping is attached as director for the animated drama I Duok om I Bohuntung – The Owl and the Rainbow.

Kōpere Hou Fresh Shorts is a short film fund offering development resources and a grant of $30,000 per film from the NZ Film Commission. Across six weeks, the teams will participate in workshops and receive mentorships to refine their stories, visions, and production plans.

This year was particularly competitive, with 119 applications submitted for the grant.

Congratulations to Jo and the team! We look forward to watching I Duok om I Bohuntung – The Owl and the Rainbow when it is out.
