Our 2019 programme is better and bigger than ever showing a selection of entertaining, delightful, and charming films.  We hope this year’s line-up will take audiences on a ride through a range of emotions as they empathise with characters both similar to and different from themselves. That’s the beauty of short films – viewers so often learn something new, feel something deeply or are genuinely inspired.

Eight Kiwi films will make their world premiere during the festival:

  • Kino Ratten by Peter McCully
  • Elderbird Song by Shuchi Kothari & Sarina Pearson
  • TIP by Jaya Beach-Robertson
  • #Collapsingempire by Cathy MacDonald
  • Number Two by Rachel Ross
  • One Hundred and Twenty Seconds by Connor Slattery
  • Te Whakairo - Ngā Kī o Te Tai Ao (The Carvings Carry the Stories of the World) by Vanessa Wells
  • Love Bytes by Sam Prebble.

There are also more than 30 New Zealand premieres of international films in this year’s programme.
