Manuwhiri Passes now on sale for the Māoriland Film Festival

Film and Indigenous Arts Industry are invited to purchase a Manuwhiri Pass to attend this years Māoriland Film Festival


Māoriland grows from strength to strength: Because of the power of indigenous cinema. And the need for people to see the work. The current state of politics and shifting attitudes towards facts and truth obscures the stories that need to be told. The Māoriland Film Festival (MFF) has some astounding films to show you.  It offers food for the mind and heart as well as many opportunities to meet and network with those who make films happen.

Tickets to the fifth annual Māoriland Film Festival are on sale now via

Tickets to all MFF screenings are $6. 

Festival highlights include 8 NZ premieres of international Indigenous documentaries, the return of BINGO Shorts and the NATIVE Slam III, the films of Nils Gaup (action-packed Sámi historical dramas - think fight scenes on skis!) and much much more! Read the programme release online here.
