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.

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...
