CREATE A FILM
Students are invited to participate in the 2017 E Tu Whānau Rangatahi Filmmaking Challenge – they are asked to use their “film voice” to make a 5 min film that tells their story from their perspective as a young person in Aotearoa.
It can be about any issue or topic they want in any style they want. If their film is selected, it will be screened at the Māoriland Rangatahi Film Festival to audiences of rangatahi, filmmakers and film festival programmers from all over the world!
What is indigenous film?
Indigenous films are works created by individuals or groups of people who self-identify as indigenous. Indigenous peoples are also known as Native Peoples, First Peoples or Tribal Peoples and are characterised by language, enduring spiritual and cultural beliefs and practices and a close connection to lands and/or territories.
‘How does your native soul inform your work?’
Māoriland Film Festival celebrates the vibrant and diverse perspectives of indigenous peoples from around the globe. At Māoriland you may see films from as far abroad as the Sámi people of Northern Europe to indigenous stories of North America, Asia and the Pacific. The films themselves are as diverse as the people – from comedies to drama to documentary. At Māoriland, you will laugh, you may cry and hopefully, you will go home inspired.
