Understanding Film Festivals

Posted Monday 04 Apr 2022

Film festivals have been a vital platform for filmmakers to showcase their stories to international audiences and nurture career connections. How can we make them work for us at all levels of our filmmaking career? Come along to this WIFT NZ workshop and hear the views of our experienced panel. 

This event will adhere to Covid traffic light Red restrictions, so seating will be limited.  

Please note: This event will require you to show your vaccine pass at the door.

Facilitator: Robin Laing, Producer

  • Anna KalbhennDirector - Goethe-Institut New Zealand, former NATIVe co-curator Berlinale
  • Libby HakaraiaFestival Director - Māoriland
  • Jasmin McSweeneyHead of Marketing, NZ Film Commission
  • Desray ArmstrongProducer, Sandy Lane Productions

Some of the topics and questions the panel will explore are:

  • What is the right festival pathway for my film?
  • How do film festivals choose their film content each year?
  • With the extraordinary growth of subscription-based streaming services such as Netflix, Disney + and Amazon Prime are film festivals still relevant?
  • How are we globally reimagining film festivals in this COVID environment?
  • How does diversity and inclusion fit into film festivals? 

This panel will be followed by a Q&A session.
