INDIGENOUS STORY TELLERS

Indigenous films are works created by individuals or groups of people who self-identify as Indigenous. Indigenous Peoples are also known as Tangata Whenua, Aboriginal, 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.

TAIAO

OUR NATURAL WORLD

The Maoriland Charitable Trust is actively committed to highlighting the environmental issues and sustainability of the natural world about us. 

The Māoriland Film festival attracts over 12,500 people to events and movies – that is a large amount of waste to be responsible for.

We understand the impact the Maoriland Film Festival has on our town, and believe this is a shared responsibility.
