Only 2 weeks to go!
Screenies is a new dedicated film festival for children (3 - 15 years) at The Auckland Performing Arts Centre (TAPAC) in Western Springs on the 22nd-25th of October (Labour Weekend). The Festival is being staged for the first time and is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 15 years.
Organisers want to encourage interest in films and storytelling among primary and intermediate school aged children. We have films from Little Big Shots in Australia and a small selection of feature films. Check out our programme on our website http://screenies.nz/ Thanks to the NZFC we have newly digitised Margaret Mahy animated films for a new generation to enjoy.
