Freedom of Flight Film Festival (FoFFF)

What is the FoFFF?

Welcome to the New Zealand based not-for-profit flying film festival showcasing inspirational adventure flying films. Brought to you in 2018 by our Gold sponsor the New Zealand Hang gliding and Paragliding Association.

Why is there a FoFFF?

We all share the dream of taking to the sky and flying like a bird. For some this becomes a reality and can be achieved in many forms, not one greater than the other, rather each an expression of the Freedom of Flight.

The film festival started in 2017 and is run by the Freedom of Flight Charitable Trust. The Trust’s purpose is to promote and support the adventure flying community whilst engaging with the general public and highlighting the world of adventure flying.

The Film Festival provides a platform for this and welcomes you to experience the passion for flight across NZ with friends, family, adventure flyers and anyone who wishes to soar like a bird! Enjoy filmmaker’s remarkable stories and lifestyles. In doing so share the dream of flight, its difficulties, challenges, joy and freedom.

How can I see the FoFFF in 2018?

Films show across NZ from November to December in Art House cinemas.

Tickets are on sale via Eventbrite and Facebook.

Screenings in Auckland Nov 10th, Wellington Nov 10th, Hastings Nov 17th, Wanaka Nov 24th, Christchurch Dec 1st, Nelson Dec 1st, Arrowtown Dec 7th & 8th and Taupo Dec 8th.

How can I find out more?
