Covid 19 has not stopped the New Zealand International Film Festival going ahead in Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.
Between November 4th and November 21st, the festival will screen 164 feature-length films from 51 countries.
This year is the festival’s 50th anniversary, and the films will start at Wellingtons’ Embassy theater with the New Zealand premiere of Dame Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog”.
The festival is directed by Marten Rabarts and he is delight that the event is able to go ahead under Covid restrictions.
The festival showcases films from all over the world. However, it also gives Aotearoa’s best and brightest creatives a chance to shine, with documentaries, fiction and short films all coming from New Zealand filmmakers.
