Māoriland Film Festival was founded in 2014 to celebrate Indigenous voices and storytelling in film from Ōtaki, Aotearoa. We exist to uplift the perspectives and stories of Indigenous peoples.
Over the past six years, the festival has grown to be the largest presenter of Indigenous screen content in the Southern Hemisphere with a year-round programme of events.
The Māoriland Hub is a home for the Indigenous, a home for the arts, a home for ideas and conversations – he whare taketake, he whare tapere, he whare kōrero. It is open year-round on Ōtaki’s Village showcasing Indigenous creativity and innovation through film, art, technology, kōrero and more.
A drawcard for visitors to the Kāpiti Coast, the Māoriland Hub is a vibrant space to create, learn and be inspired.
