Every Winter, thousands of film lovers and journalists descend upon Berlin for the one of the most important dates on the international film calendar: the Berlinale. A selection of films from the glamorous, cutting edge festival will now be screened at AUT in Auckland on June 21.

AUT City Campus, WG403 lecture theatre, Level 3, WG Sir Paul Reeves Building, corner of Governor Fitzroy Plaza & Mayoral Drive

Each year, the unusual, the unseen, the moving and the unconventional can be discovered at the Berlinale (or Berlin International Film Festival). Short film curator Maike Mia H�hne has grown the "Berlinale Shorts" into one of the most esteemed showcases for short films in the world. For the "Berlinale Shorts go Exterior" programme, a sample of the films from the Berlinale in 2013 will be screened. The films are brought to New Zealand by Hamburg-based curator and filmmaker Stefanie Reis.

The screening programme will start at 6.30pm, and there will be a brief Q&A session afterwards.
Presented in association with CoLab and supported by AUT University, the Goethe-Institut, New Zealand Film Commission, Women In Film and Television Incorporated New Zealand, and The Film Archive

News from NZ on Screen

The second edition of NZ On Screen's decade showcases presents an onscreen Top 10 for the 70s. The decade of fondue and flares also cooked up colour television. Our black and white living room icons - from Selwyn Toogood to Space Waltz - melted into a Kiwi kaleidoscope of Top Town, Grunt Machine, and Close to Home. And 'our stories' and rights fights - boks, hikoi, nukes and 'nam - found screen footholds (Sleeping Dogs, Gallery The Governor).

The collection is introduced by the man who introduced Bohemian Rhapsody to NZ TV. Winking blinking presenter and self-confessed "TV Junkie" Roger Gascoigne looks back at the 70s as seen on NZ TV.

By hokey, jeez Wayne, are you ready to roll?
