The Other Maori Film Festival

The Other Maori Film Festival

On the other side of the world this week, Maori and Pasifika film making is being feted and celebrated in style. The imagineNATIVE Film & Media Arts Festival is screening 16 different film and media works, many only recently premiered at the Wairoa Maori Film Festival and the New Zealand International Film Festival.

Wairoa Maori Film Festival is proud to be present and part of the imagineNATIVE Film & Media Arts Festival, and is also working with Mika and Mika Haka Foundation in the distribution and promotion of their media art works (including TANIWHA) and anti-bullying web series THE AROHA PROJECT. "Mika is a global champion for issues around racism, homophobia, bullying and whanau, and we are proud to help promote his works as they travel around the world."

Past winners of the Wairoa Maori Film Festival are featured at imagineNATIVE.

"Wairoa Maori Film Festival is proud to promote Maori film and Maori film makers, and are excited to be travelling with them on their journey around the world," says Festival Director Leo Koziol.

"In some ways, imagineNATIVE is the 'Other' Maori film festival on the other side of the world, a fantastic celebration of Maori and Pasifika film making amongst the talent of global natives from around the world," says Mr. Koziol.

The Maori Film Festival's director will also be watching out for works of excellence from international native film makers from Canada, USA, Sami Land, and elsewhere in the world, to curate for the next Wairoa Maori Film Festival occurring at Kahungunu Marae, Nuhaka, Wairoa, fromJune 3-6 next year.
