As part of their growth initiative Documentary Edge are very proud to launch the Documentary Edge Regional Tour 2013. The tour has been developed to bring a taste of the annual festival to NZ regions that wouldn't have experienced it like Auckland and Wellington. Think of it as a grand backpacking adventure across the beautiful landscapes of NZ - they've packed a selection of excellent films from this year's festival.
This tour partners with smaller boutique cinemas to offer kiwis an opportunity to enjoy and embrace stories that would have screened exclusively in the festival. Doc Edge are very excited about this new unchartered venture; it is definitely something we are passionate about. Documentaries create unison of shared stories; community. They would like to share that knowledge and atmosphere across NZ.
The selection of films range from, profiles of 11 year old children from a variety of international cultures and backgrounds, who talk of their life aspirations; the debacle of the increase in domestic waste humans create on earth; highly competitive and aggressive young kiwi females battle it out in roller derby; the strength, commitment and love of parents trying to find their son; the journey to take Shakespeare, performed in Te Reo Maori to London and many more.
