We are delighted to announced that Leanne Pooley, a finalist in the South Pacific Pictures Award for Achievement in Film at this year's WIFT awards, had the US premiere of her new film "25 April" at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival over Waitangi weekend.

The biennial WIFT awards are NZ's only film and television gongs that celebrate achievers like Leanne and other women who have carved out a successful career in a very tough industry.

Tickets are available for this year's event being held on Thursday 25 February.


This will be a night to celebrate, support and enjoy seeing women at the top of their game receiving the recognition from their peers that they so richly deserve. Tickets are selling fast so don't leave it until the last minute as you will miss out!
