PRIDE is a comedic adaptation of the true story of a group of LGBT activists raising funds for small town Welsh families affected by the U.K Miner Strikes of 1984. Initial tension between the groups is overcome as they collaborate to support struggling families and fight discrimination. Check out the trailer here.

Meet Peter Needs Your Vote!

Posted Tuesday 07 Oct 2014

There are caves under the streets of Auckland. Over 200 of them. WIFT member Gemma Duncan and her team are making Meet Peter, a Fresh Shorts-funded documentary about these volcanic lava caves. The caves are dark, mysterious and surprisingly full of human history, but public access to visit them is limited.

So not only are the team making a highly-visual film, but also an interactive website so that audiences (YOU) can experience these caves where access is otherwise limited. The website will include a realistic, interactive 3D walkthrough of one of Auckland's largest and untouched lava caves.

The film is in edit. The award-winning designer and developer are working on the website right now. The 3D map is being compiled by local surveying company Envivo and looking impressive!

The team need your help. Director Gemma Duncan has applied for an AMP Scholarship to pay for the hosting of this data-heavy website for 5+ years. She's calling for your vote. So if you want the chance to experience the lava caves found under your feet, here's how you can help:
