Māoriland Charitable Trust

Māoriland presents, facilitates and supports Māori and international Indigenous filmmakers and creatives. It exists for the social, economic and educational success of its community in Otaki through connection to the wider world of Indigenous creativity and innovation.

Welcome to the tribal lands of Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga: Home to the subtribes of Ngāti Korokī, Ngāti Maiōtaki, Ngāti Huia ki Katihiku, Ngāti Pare and Ngāti Kapumanawawhiti. We are grateful for the support of Ngā Hapū o Ōtaki, our kaumātua and kuia, our kaimahi and our whānau. Tēnā koutou.

Māoriland Charitable Trust (MCT) was formed in 2016 to facilitate the operation of the Māoriland Film Festival and its growing programme of year-round activities.

Its purpose is to improve the social, economic and educational opportunities to the community of Ōtaki through the presentation of  Indigenous films and the creation of educational pathways into the film and creative technology industries.

The MCT’s key focus is the Māoriland Film Festival and the Māoriland Hub to enable the development, education and encouragement of the creative arts.

This, in turn, inspires programmes for the benefit of the wider community, especially young people in Ōtaki.

Māoriland is supported by a community of sponsors, partners and friends – their donation(s) enables the Māoriland Film Festival and Māoriland Hub to grow and flourish year, after year.
