Director’s note

Kiriata | Feature films:

The small whānau behind the scenes have been working hard to make this our best festival yet. We’ve been out and about from Ōtaki to Ōpōtiki to Canada, the Pacific and many places in between. It has been an honour and pleasure to view a lot of fine kiriata and to bring these to you. Tēnā koutou katoa.

NZ FILM FESTIVAL PREMIERE OF MAHANA

Thank you to all who support the Māoriland Film Festival, especially our patrons, co-presenters and friends of the Festival.

Directed by Lee Tamahori (Once Were Warriors) Mahana brings Witi Ihimaera’s Bulibasha to the big screen in splendid style. Starring Temuera Morrison and Nancy Brunning, Mahana is a gripping story of fantasy, feuds, and family.

To all our rangatahi who are our storytellers both now and in the future: We hope that you will be uplifted and inspired by what you see, and by the wisdom of filmmakers from around the world. Ka nui ngā mihi maioha atu nei.

Introduction

Nau mai!

Sign on for the MFF2016 workshops.

Self funded film THREE WISE COUSINS has taken New Zealand by storm! This is a story of rediscovery and the pursuit of love, as ‘Plastic Samoan boy’ Adam heads home to Samoa to connect with his roots. THREE WISE COUSINS promises to make you laugh out loud!

Ōtaki has beaches, rivers, forests and mountain ranges and a welcoming community with a thriving Māori culture. This is what makes the Māoriland Film Festival unique.

From March 23 - 27th (Easter), we invite you to spend the five days of the festival immersed in films, workshops and kōrerō with the filmmakers. Vote for your favourite film and be part of the positive buzz that is MFF2016.

Want to know more about filmmaking from the filmmakers themselves including acting, hip hop, sound and storytelling?

BORN TO DANCE (dir. Tammy Davis) is New Zealand’s first dance film and features choreography from multi award winner Parris Goebel. It is a tale of Tū (Tia Maipi) who dreams of becoming a professional Hip Hop dancer.

The Māoriland Film Festival is held annually in Ōtaki on New Zealand’s Kāpiti Coast, just an hour outside of Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city.

MFF2016 celebrates Indigenous films from around the globe with the Sámi in the Arctic, through Europe, Canada and the Middle East and across the Americas to Australia and around the Pacific including Aotearoa.
