New Zealand International Film Festival

July 20 – August 6, 2017

Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand

 

20th Century Womn- Film FestivalWhat’s It All About?

The New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) is a national event, with a programme of 150-170 features presented in Auckland and Wellington. NZIFF opens in Auckland a weekend in advance and gets underway in Wellington the next, overlapping for ten of their respective 17 day seasons. A smaller programme then travels to 12 further centres.

The consolidation of several separately evolved festivals into a single event known as the NZIFF occurred for the first time in 2009 and is operated by the New Zealand Film Festival Trust. The festival has grown nationally since the merging in 1984 of the Auckland International Film Festival and the Wellington Film Festival.

NZIFF has revealed the first eight films of the 2017 programme which will screen from July 20, including three New Zealand-made documentaries and four international feature films, starring the likes of Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Sienna Miller and Robert Pattinson.

Guest selector and filmmaker Gaylene Preston selected the six finalists from a shortlist of 12. Festival programmers Bill Gosden and Michael McDonnell viewed 83 entries to prepare the shortlist.

Seven short films have been selected by Leo Koziol and Craig Fasi for the Ng Whanaunga Mori Pasifika Shorts 2017.
