Screenies Opens in Four Weeks!

Posted Saturday 27 Aug 2016



WIFT member Janette Howe has worked tirelessly to get Screenies Children's Film Festival off the ground. It's a children's film festival and a much needed and desired addition to our film festival programme.

Ticket sales are now open. There are short films, feature films and free workshops to enjoy for kids of all ages 22- 25th September at TAPAC in Auckland. Please support this initiative to get kids hooked into cinema made just for them and from around the world.

Drop your youngster off to take part in the 13+ Film Intensive or to watch some great cinema and enjoy the workshops.  They have a special Thunderbirds screening and workshop for ages 7+ (places limited) thanks to industry sponsors Pukeko Pictures, and a very special French film "Birds of Passage" for 10+ that they are bringing to the festival with support from South Pacific Pictures.

Please grab the kids or grandkids (or a friend's kids) and give your support to this great initiative!
