Hot on the high heels of her fringe success Vanity Insanity, Pollyfilla is back with a dazzling new production Pollywood!

Pollyfilla Productions proudly presents smatterings of sequins, sparkles, synthetic hair, six inch heels and smutty jokes as Pollyfilla pulls out all the stops in this cracker of a Christmas comedy with balls! Pollywood! is a lipsynched musical comedy revue, satirizing celebrities and actresses, the characters they played, the children they beat up behind closed doors and the addictions that spun them out of control!

The festive season just got hilarious! Join Wellington's finest comic talents as they mirth and chortle at the time of year we all love and hate. If you're sick of all the sappy TV Christmas specials where little Timmy gets a dog, the Christmas Comedy Special is your kind of show.

We will tell our real Christmas stories that will leave you in yuletide stitches without the snow, red suits and "Full House" moments. Featuring MC Ben Hurley and guests.

Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>
