Take a bow, Shirley Horrocks - the WIFT member has notched up her 10th documentary in the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF)!

Eight world premieres, and one local premiere, of New Zealand documentaries were announced last week for the NZIFF. NZ artists, artisans, extreme sportspeople and energetic adventurers will be celebrated on screen throughout the country from late July.

Shirley Horrocks' tenth NZIFF documentary (pictured above) relates the storied 37-year history of Christchurch's often provocative, always daring Free Theatre, creators of countless extraordinary productions and performance events.

Read the full announcement here. The NZIFF programme will be available online from Monday 26 June 7pm, and on the streets from Tuesday 27 June for Auckland and Friday 30 June for Wellington. Three documentaries have previously been announced for NZIFF 2017: My Year With Helen from director (and WIFTer) Gaylene Preston, Florian Habicht's Spookers, and Annie Goldson's Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web.

Congratulations, Shirley!
