Here’s your chance to make a documentary.
We’re excited to announce that The Wireless is now accepting proposals for a fourth season of Wireless Docs. We’ll be commissioning six new made-for-web documentary films to be released in late-2018.
Wireless Docs filmmakers have previously documented the de-stigmatising of HIV, the isolated life of west coast whitebaiters, and the ecological conflicts faced by the whale watch industry in the ocean around Vava’u, Tonga. They’ve experimented with different styles and explored an array of themes - the struggle against authority, making life-changing choices and finding community.
Many of these films have now been seen at film festivals around the world and have featured on TVNZ OnDemand, with two receiving awards from the New Zealand Cinematographers Society.

We’re looking for passionately-told New Zealand stories from filmmakers with documentary-making experience. We’re open to a range of visual treatments, from animations or classic expository docs to reflexive, gonzo-style docs and fly-on-the-wall observational works.
The basic info:
- Budget: $3000 per doc
- Length: 6-12 mins
- Proposals due 5pm, 6 August 2018
