Escape the cold and celebrate French Cinema

Posted Monday 04 Jun 2018

The cold weather is the perfect excuse for watching lots of films, short French ones in particular! Aucklanders, get cosy at The Kingslander on 19 June for French Short Film night with Show Me Shorts and Alliance Fran�aise French Film Festival. They'll be screening a diverse selection of seven short films, in which you'll get to enjoy animation, drama, trains and swimming pools. All films screen in French with English subtitles, and the total run time is about 80 minutes. Book early as these events usually sell out!

When: 7pm Tuesday 19 June
Where: Upstairs function room at The Kingslander, 470 New North Road, Kingsland, Auckland

NZOA and TVNZ launch HEIHEI, the ad-free kids' media platform

Posted Monday 04 Jun 2018

There was a bit of a heihei in Auckland's Henderson last week as broadcasters and kids descended on Woah! Studios for the launch party of HEIHEI, TVNZ's new ad-free media platform for kids. The name means "commotion" or "chicken" in te reo, and the streaming service features shows using Maori language, as well as New Zealand people and place names, and Kiwi kids, characters and accents, wherever possible. NZ On Air has funded the platform, while TVNZ, led by Amie Mills, developed and delivered it.
