As this year's cinematic feast looms, the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) expands online with the launch of an online screening platform supported by SHIFT72.
Films from the back catalogue of Florian Habicht, Summer Agnew, Adam Luxton, Jeremy Dumble, Simon Ogston, and Rebecca Tansley are now available to rent on NZIFF's Video On Demand (VOD) platform.
The VOD initiative has been made possible with sponsorship from platform provider SHIFT72. SHIFT72 are leading providers in Secure Video On Demand Technology, powering large entertainment brands such as SXSW Film Festival, Austin (TX) and Cannes Film Festival, France.
"Seeing how limited the opportunities for post-NZIFF life can be for some of our favourite films, we are expanding our screening capabilities to include Video On Demand. A small initial selection of previous NZIFF titles is now available anywhere in NZ that internet allows. In the future we anticipate making much more use of this new platform, with simultaneous NZIFF premieres online and in the cinema. NZIFF On Demand will also provide the opportunity to extend the availability of many titles currently confined to big city screens," says NZIFF Director Bill Gosden.
