The Māoriland Rangatahi Film Festival (MRFF) is an opportunity for young people to watch Indigenous films from around the world that will excite, educate and inspire them.
The MRFF is programme by Ngā Pakiaka, a committee of young filmmakers from around Aotearoa.
The MRFF is targeted towards school groups. Teachers wanting more information about the festival should contact Rangatahi Coordinator Madeleine de Young
The roots of a tree are it’s life source, they carry food and water to the branches and leaves and give it life. The name ‘Ngā Pakiaka’ means ‘The Roots’.
We believe that through not only our Festival but through our outlook on life as rangatahi filmmakers, we will be able to supply other aspiring filmmakers and storytellers with tools and knowledge to thrive in the filmmaking world and continue building their pathways.
“Ko te ao kiriata te ara mō te ao hou.”
“The filmmaking world is the pathway to the new world.”
