WIFTers Robin Murphy (producer) and Ness Simons (writer/director) are flying the crowdfunding flag for season two of their webseries Pot Luck.

Pot Luck is a fresh, fun and sexy webseries that follows the lives of three Wellington lesbian friends (pictured) as they negotiate friendship, family and finding love at their weekly pot luck dinners.

Pot Luck season one is screening on eight different online platforms and has had more than 2 million unique views across all six episodes. It's been officially selected for UK Webfest, Dub (Dublin) Webfest, Out Webfest, Webseries Festival Global, NZ Webfest, and received 10 Merit Awards from the Rome Webfest.

They're gearing up to shoot Pot Luck season two in August 2017 and have some funding, but are relying on raising the rest of the money they need via Boosted. Their crowdfunding campaign will run until July 13 - we encourage you all to have a look at the series and consider supporting them!

Posted Tuesday 13 Jun 2017

The Wairoa Maori Film Awards were held earlier this month at the Gaiety Theatre, Wairoa, as part of the Wairoa Maori Film Festival.

We're pleased to report that WIFT member Aidee Walker won the Audience Award - Maori Short Film - Actress, for her part in Laundry by Becs Arahanga.

And of course, we were delighted to see the WMFF WIFT Mana Wahine Award presented to Christina Asher, one of New Zealand's most committed and passionate advocates for our Maori and wider New Zealand screen industry.

Congratulations to both wonderful women!
