Every winter NZIFF relish the challenge of breaking out the new, but there's something strangely refreshing about revitalising the tried and the true every autumn. For the third year their Autumn Events Classic Film screenings aim to provide the perfect supplement to the popular revival screenings at the annual mid-winter festival.
Walt Disney's Pinocchio and two very different Kubrick epics - Spartacus and 2001: A Space Odyssey - all come in freshly minted studio digital transfers, while new digital restorations give the best possible reason to celebrate A Hard Day's Night and Bertolucci's ravishing The Conformist.
As the HD era continues apace, the choice of great films in digital formats expands. Films conceived to be projected on the grand scale are a priority for NZIFF - and no one ever accused Walt Disney, Bernardo Bertolucci or Stanley Kubrick of thinking small.
Go straight to www.nziff.co.nz for screening details for all five films.
