Through Our Lens is a Māoriland film leadership kaupapa that connects Indigenous youth around the world through peer-led filmmaking workshops.
The first Through Our Lens took place in 2017. In 2018 TOLII took 4 rangatahi filmmakers to Rarotonga and Aitutaki to work with their peers. This is the world premiere of the five films made in the Cook Islands.

TOLII will continue in 2019.
