Libby Hakaraia on life, and indigenous filmmaking
Te Whaea: National Dance & Drama Centre, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown, Wellington
6pm arrival for a 6.30pm start

Libby Hakaraia, Director of the Māoriland Film Festival and the Māoriland Hub, was the recipient of the Imagezone Entrepreneurship Award at the 2018 WIFT Awards. A champion of indigenous filmmaking at a time when there are significant breakthroughs in New Zealand, with the impact of Waru and recognition of its writer/directors, and the launch of Te Rautaki Māori by the NZ Film Commission two weeks ago, it is the perfect time to hear Libby talk about plans for the Māoriland Hub, including the International Indigenous filmmaker residence, Native Slam and other Māoriland initiatives for filmmaker collaborations, and the indigenous film festival network.

Libby will be joined by Dale Corlett, Head of Talent Development at the NZ Film Commission.  Dale will give attendees a practical brief on Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga's Te Rautaki Māori and their hopes and expectations for this programme.

Please note: Ngā Aho Whakaari plans to hold a mihi whakatau for the pou whakahaere at the earliest convenience of that person once the position has been officially taken up in late June.

This will be advertised to the NAW membership and all will be welcome. As well as the whakatau, they will be working through the Rautaki and the processes  required to ensure members of our industry have what they need to put a successful application together. Venue to be announced.
