MĀORILAND FILM FESTIVAL
Nau mai, Haere Mai! Welcome to Māoriland Film Festival!
Māoriland Film Festival is an international festival that celebrates Indigenous voices and storytelling in film.
This year, from the 23 – 27 March, 2016 we are extremely excited to present a range of films that extend from the Sámi in the North, across the Americas, Asia to our own home in the South Pacific.
In this festival programme you will see films that will make you laugh, cry and introduce you to worlds, quite unique from our own.

WHERE IS MĀORILAND?
Located on New Zealand’s Kapiti Coast, Otaki is a vibrant town where Māori culture thrives.
With three immersion Maori language schools, one high school, and three Marae. It is also home to the country’s first Maori university campus – Te Wānanga o Raukawa. This pioneering institution has facilities catering for 2,500 students.
Widely known as ‘Sunny Otaki’, the town is well suited for big city commuters. There is a domestic airport 19kms to the south (in Paraparaumu) and Wellington, New Zealand’s capital is only 80km away.
