NZIFF was founded on the principle of sharing box office income with filmmakers, providing them with the all-too-rare opportunity to launch their works locally and derive some income in the process. Run by a charitable trust, NZIFF proudly maintains a rich tradition of diverse choice in a curated selection of expertly crafted films - features, documentaries and short films too - that deserve to be experienced with an audience.
NZIFF thrives on lively interactions between films, filmmakers and New Zealand audiences and is held annually, starting in Auckland on 19 July in 2018.
