Congratulations to WIFT member Alyx Duncan for making the list of six filmmakers whose short films were selected by Christine Jeffs to contend for the awards on this year's New Zealand's Best short film programme. For the fourth year in a row, NZIFF will be showcasing a fantastic selection of shorts from established filmmakers and up-and-coming talent alike. Alyx directed, produced and wrote the screenplay for The Tide Keeper about an old seaman who dreams the ocean into his bed.
Attend a screening in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin or Christchurch and you'll be crowd-funding their Audience Award: 25% of the box office goes to the film ranked top by Auckland and Wellington audiences. We've been delighted by the popularity of this contest over the last three years, and look forward to some lively screenings in 2015.
NZIFF programmes will be available in Auckland from Tuesday 23 June, in Wellington from Friday 26 June, in Dunedin from Tuesday 7 July, and in Christchurch from Tuesday 14 July with other centres to follow.
