Film Fiji is offering development programs for 20 scriptwriters and 40 film producers to help enhance the natural story-telling abilities of locals and bring in necessary skills and network opportunities.

Chief Executive of Film Fiji, Ramiro Tenorio states that the program will assist aspiring writers and producers to perfect their projects and learn how to present them to overseas markets, as well as co-produce internationally.

“We hope that it’s going to be a game changer and that it’s going to really support the Fijian filmmakers in the future. So we are looking forward to the projects that are going to apply and how the local industry is going to look in the next five to 10 years in terms of the development of local films, local TV shows, in general, the creation of intellectual property of content in the audiovisual sector.”
