THE FILM WORLD IS A PATHWAY TO THE NEW WORLD

 

MRFF presents Indigenous films from around the globe for school students in years 5 to 13 and tertiary with short, feature and documentary films. 

These films present the experiences and identities of young Indigenous people from around the world. Rangatahi who attend the MRFF will engage with current issues and unique perspectives that will challenge and inspire. 

MRFF is programmed by rangatahi for rangatahi

OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS

WATCH FILMS

The Māoriland Rangatahi Film Festival will be a unique opportunity for your students to experience stories from the perspective of Indigenous communities from across the globe, many of which will have been made by other students – like them.

Entry to MRFF screenings is $2/screening or $5 for a day pass. 

HEAR FROM THE FILMMAKERS

Each year filmmakers travel from around the globe to Ōtaki for the Māoriland Film Festival. Rangatahi will have the opportunity to ask the filmmakers questions and to attend panel discussions with industry professionals from around the world.

SCREEN YOUR FILM & BE RECOGNISED!

The E T Whnau Rangatahi Film Challenge is an opportunity for rangatahi up to the age of 24 to create films that present their perspective as young people in Aotearoa.

Moriland challenges youth to be creative – to use what they’ve got and what they know to tell their stories.

Films entered in the challenge are celebrated at the E T Whnau Rangatahi Filmmaking Awards, held at the Moriland Film Festival each March. The 2019 awards will be held on March 21, 2019. Entries close on December 21.
