Congratulations to director Anna Duckworth (DEGNZ) for being one of six screenwriters selected to participate in this years’ Show Me Shorts’ Screenwriting Lab. The mentoring scheme aims to assist writers in developing their ideas for short films. In the past, DEGNZ members have participated in the lab, developed their films and premiered the final cut at various film festivals, including, Mark PrebblesBaby?, which premiered at Show Me Shorts and Claire van Beek’s Daniel which premiered at Melbourne International Film Festival. This is a great opportunity and we recommend you consider this for 2022.
