Wild Untamed Cinema Unleashed

Wild Untamed Cinema Unleashed

Launched upon an unsuspecting conservative NZ climate in 1994, the Incredibly Strange Film Festival was was greeted with cheers from movie maniacs and jeers from self appointed moral guardians of the state. For ten years the festival brought provocative, controversial, bizarre, surreal and totally wild cinema to New Zealand audiences.

In 2008, it's back, the gloves are off and the guns are blazing. The Incredibly Strange Film Festival will again be NZ's leading source for wild untamed cinema.
