Calling all native filmmakers!

Calling all native filmmakers! Submissions for the third inaugural Māoriland Film Festival (23 - 27 March, 2016) are now open.


Māoriland Film Festival is an international festival that celebrates Indigenous voices and storytelling in film.

Each March, Māoriland presents a selection of the most distinctive Indigenous works from around the globe.

Hosted in Ōtaki, New Zealand, Māoriland is inspired by the mauri (energy) of its location. Ōtaki has a strong Māori identity with extensive Māori education facilities.

At Māoriland we believe in the vitality of indigenous knowledge and the power of being able to communicate Indigenous perspectives in Indigenous terms.

The works presented at Māoriland are a showcase of the immense wealth of Indigenous creative talents, demonstrating the unique and diverse perspectives of Indigenous people the world over.

Submissions for Māoriland Film Festival in 2016 are now open!

If you are an Indigenous filmmaker you are invited to submit your film, video or new media work to Māoriland for selection.

Submissions close December 11th, 2015. Late submissions ($25 admin fee) will be accepted until January 15, 2016.
