Maoriland Film Festival is Aotearoa’s international Indigenous film festival. Each March, Māoriland brings Indigenous filmmakers from around the world to celebrate their work with screenings, workshops, and other special events. The festival, now in its fifth year welcomed 12,500 people to Ōtaki earlier this year.
In celebration of its fifth birthday, Māoriland is bringing a selection of films to the North this July with screenings and free two-day filmmaking workshops for rangatahi in Whangarei, Kaitaia and Auckland.
Mankiller (2017) is the story of an American legend, Wilma Mankiller, who overcame rampant sexism and personal challenges to emerge as the Cherokee Nation’s first woman Principal Chief in 1985. MANKILLER examines the legacy of the formidable Wilma Mankiller, who has been credited to this day as one of the most important leaders in America’s fight for equality. In March, Mankiller was named Māoriland People’s Choice for Best Documentary.
