The E Tu Whānau Rangatahi Film Awards are a celebration of rangatahi (youth) filmmaking.

Each year, the Māoriland Film Festival holds a series of youth filmmaking workshops around regional Aotearoa where they work with young people to find their ‘film voice’. The young people are then challenged to produce a film with whatever tools they have available to them – cameras, phones, webcams – apps off the internet. With the technology available to us now, young people can create anything they set their minds to.

The 2017 E Tu Whānau Rangatahi Film Awards were held on Thursday March 16 2017 at Ngā Purapura in Ōtaki.

ABOUT E TU WHĀNAU


E Tū Whānau is a movement for positive change developed by Māori for Māori. It’s about taking responsibility and action in your community and supporting whānau to thrive.

E Tu Whānau nurtures and celebrates:

  • Te Ao Māori taking responsibility and action to create positive change
  • Doing things that make whānau strong − te mana kaha o te whānau!
  • Tikanga and traditional values – drawing on rich and powerful traditions
  • Kahukura − the people that inspire change in whānau and communities.

E Tu Whānau has been developed by the Māori Reference Group for the Taskforce for Action on Violence within Families (MRG) and it belongs to everyone. You can take the messages and the values, and do what you need to, to make it work for you and your whānau.

E Tu Whānau have been a key supporter of the Māoriland Rangatahi Filmmaking Awards since 2014.
