BINGO SHORTS

For the first time at Māoriland we are combining two great forms of entertainment! Bingo (or Housie!) and short films!

We’ve flown in a Bingo caller from Toronto Canada who just happens to be on the board of the imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival. He is also a well loved stand up comic! Bring a pen!
