The Village Theatre has been home to allshorts since 2006. allshorts organisers wanted to see their short films on the big screen and guessed that lots of other filmmakers from all over New Zealand would feel the same. A website was generated a date was set and pretty soon films from Auckland to Antarctica began arriving at 32 Commercial Street Takaka. By Festival night the red carpet was rolled out and a sell-out crowd were greeted with a glass of bubbles and a programme crammed with films from every genre. The festival was received with wild appreciation and allshorts was firmly on the calendar.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable.
