Posted Wednesday 30 Sep 2020


It's great to see that Kelly Moneymaker's short documentary Vaka, made the final selection at the Krakow Green Film Festival in Poland, and has been nominated for Best Short Documentary at the Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF).

Made by Massey University Media Production students,Vaka shows people from the remote Pacific community of Tokelau doing everything they can to proactively respond to climate change, weaving together customary wisdom and modern techniques.

Kelly also says the main team consisted of her and two women producers - that's what we like to hear!
