Finalist – Best Television Current Affairs Programme, Qantas Media


Jeremy Hansen saw the first Star Wars film when he was growing up in Wairoa, and when he went back last weekend for the inaugural Maori Film Festival, he found it entirely appropriate that the latest Star Wars instalment is showing, featuring three Maori actors. Jeremy reports on the festival highlights, and finds out what happened to the hot guy from Rudall and Ramai Hayward’s “To Love a Maori”.


Photographer Deborah Smith invited Marti Friedlander to exhibit with her at John Leech Gallery during the Auckland Photography Festival. Deborah chose the work, and the resulting exhibition “She Said” looks at the way both photographers have captured childhood in their lenses.


Auckland’s St Matthew-in-the-City church becomes an art gallery next week to celebrate its centenary and raise funds for restoration. A host of respected sculptors have created works “suitable for a domestic environment”, many of which also carry a spiritual theme. Frontseat previews the exhibition.

Best regards,

The Frontseat Team
