Festival seeks island-themed films and docos

Posted Monday 25 Nov 2019

Isle De Groix Festival

A friend of WIFT NZ alerted us to the fact that New Zealand is made up of several islands, ergo films about New Zealand could qualify for the Isle De Groix Film Festival! We encourage you to do a little research by clicking at the link below, but here's a brief outline of the festival's history (translated from the website). "In 2001, a handful of inhabitants of the island of Groix (off the coast of Brittany), passionate about cinema, create the first International Festival of Insular Film. Their goal: to facilitate, through a unifying event, meetings and exchanges by giving the word to the islanders of the whole world. This challenge, a bit crazy at the start, has become today a must-attend annual event."
