This year a showcase of Māori Pasifika Shorts makes a welcome addition to the NZ International Film Festival programme.  Join us to hear from three of the filmmakers at a special Film Festival Screen Discussion presented by Ngā Aho Whakaari.

The showcase includes both experienced writer Briar Grace-Smith and producer Libby Hakaraia‘s directing debuts (Nine of Hearts and The Lawnmower Men of Kapu). Libby, Briar and her co-writer Kelly Joseph talk to chair Kath Akuhata-Brown about finding the story, the nature of collaborative writing and transitioning to directing.

Come early and enjoy a glass of Doctor’s courtesy of Forrest Winery and stay afterward for a slice of pizza courtesy of Hell.
