NZFilm Selected for the Pasadena International Film Festival

New Zealand Film Selected for the Pasadena International Film Festival


The New Zealand Film and Television School has turned out another winning film with ‘Entropy’ being selected as an ‘Official Selection’ to be screened at the 2014 Pasadena International Film Festival.

‘Entropy’ is a short film directed by Isaac Cleland, Crew 25. It’s about a young man struggling to come to terms with the inevitability of his own fate. He dreams of a world where his life and those of the people around him are of no consequence. With his time running short, he fights to make what remains of his life meaningful and his own.

Director, Cleland graduated from The New Zealand Film and Television School in 2013. His passion as a filmmaker lies in exploring stories that reflect experiences and themes from the people of New Zealand. ‘Entropy’ captures this; it explores the harsh realities of significant themes such as life and death.

Over 300 submissions were received for the 2014 Pasadena International Film Festival; from the USA, Brazil, Canada, France, India, Iran, New Zealand, Romania, Slovenia, South Korea, Switzerland and the UK. ‘Entropy’ was one of the few short films chosen to be screened at the festival; the talent shown in the film impressing the selectors.

We are delighted that another of our student films has been selected for an international film festival said Sima Urale, Head Tutor, New Zealand Film and Television School. “It’s great that we and our graduate filmmakers are getting international recognition.”

“Entropy’ will be screen at the Pasadena International Film Festival 12-16 February 2014.

The New Zealand Film and Television School is a subsidiary of Whitireia New Zealand Limited.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
