The annual New Zealand International Film Festival has long been the premier film event of the year, and the cultural highlight of the New Zealand winter. We bring an impressive array of the latest and best films from all over the world to 15 cities and towns around New Zealand.
The Festival commences in late July, lighting up central Dunedin. The 2010 line-up will feature more than 80 titles including hot titles from the Cannes and Sundance film festivals.
All films, other than designated retrospectives, are New Zealand premieres (a key requirement for films in the programme) so that we can offer audiences their first-ever opportunity to taste a cinematic smorgasbord of titles not confined to the mainstream.
A rich and varied programme of international and homegrown features and documentaries as well as key retrospective presentations has now been announced. Key highlights in the programme include:
1) Sergio Leone’s classic western, Once Upon A Time in the West
2) Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom
3) Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop
4) NZ feature premiere Predicament
5) Italian opulence in I Am Love
The Festival’s programmers spend the year scouring the world for the programme they hope will offer the most to New Zealand audiences. The programmers are Festival Director Bill Gosden; Paris-based Kiwi Sandra Reid; Incredibly Strange maven, Ant Timpson; and Animation whiz Malcolm Turner. In Wellington Assistant Programmer Michael McDonnell handles a massive number of submitted entries and Square Eyes founder Nic Marshall advises on films for kids.
The Festival’s retrospective programme is always hugely popular. This year audiences will have the rare chance to enjoy Sergio Leone’s classic Western Once Upon a Time in the West on the giant CinemaScope screens at the elegant Regent in Dunedin.
The Festival travels to the main centres – Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin, Christchurch, Palmerston North, Hamilton – before continuing around the country to Napier, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Nelson, Greymouth, Masterton, Gisborne and finishes in Whangarei and Kerikeri in November.
Censorship classifications will be published in the Festival’s programme, daily newspaper advertising, website and will be displayed at the venues’ box office.
