Māoriland Film Festival celebrates the work of Indigenous Filmmakers. We identify Indigenous Film as those screen stories where the key creatives; Directors, Producers, Writers and Actors identify themselves as an indigenous person.

Indigenous film highlights stories, language, culture and diverse environments amidst an increasingly homogenised world.

In 2016 Māoriland Film Festival will focus on films from the Pacific Rim and build relationships with indigenous filmmakers from the Pacific Nations, including America, Canada, Taiwan, Phillippines, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia.

The programme for 2016 will be announced early February, 2016.
