Short films with a big message: WIFT-ers' Someday Stories

We're pleased to see there are WIFT-ers in the mix of the fifth series of Someday Stories, a creative development platform for emerging filmmakers! Show your support and check them out at the links below.

Alyssa Medel-Khew's film Mekeni (pictured) explores how an unexpected encounter connects a Filipino-Kiwi daughter and her migrant father, causing them to confront their ongoing grief in the face of impending further loss.

Meanwhile, A Peek Inside The CHCH Internet Troll Agency, produced by Mikaela Ruegg and co-written and directed by Genevieve Kent, explores fake news with tongue firmly in cheek. A documentary crew is granted special access through a family member into the Christchurch branch of the top-secret Social Cyberspace Agency.

Series 5 is set to launch on Wednesday 8 September. Films premiere at 11am on day of release, and will stream on PlayStuff, RNZ, and Māori Television On Demand, as well as the Someday Stories website, Facebook page, YouTube channel and on Vimeo.
