We're thrilled to see Julia Reynolds' feature film Shepherd will be screening in New Zealand cinemas from 12 November! Reynolds' sci-fi film was shot in the Waikato, over six years, and follows the main character who grows up on screen. Here's a bit about the film: during their voyage home to Earth from Mars' Moon Base Phobos, the Green family encounter a phenomenon where the entire star system fades from view leaving them without navigation. A lone light appears to one side of the shuttle. Thirteen-year old Eden Green, grieving for her recently dead brother, believes this light will lead them home. Years later, and haunted by guilt of the past and visions of her brother, Eden stumbles on an old travel brochure. She is stunned to see an image of a beach - a location she has seen in a recurring dream. Believing her brother is leading her to it, she leaves her life and ventures out to find the beach.

We're giving away two tickets for one screening at each cinema listed below - all you have to do is click here to watch the trailer then answer the question below:
