That's the name of this short film, co-written and co-directed by WIFT NZ member Breana Rath. It's a five-minute dance-based short film to bring the spark back to "the coolest little capital in the world", and the graduate project of a group of final-year Massey university students.
Can’t Beat Wellington on a Good Night tells a story of what it means to belong, not only within a city and community but within yourself, following two strangers through the ups and downs of a first date and finding their feet in a strange new city.
Breana and the team are running a fundraising campaign on Boosted and need your financial help bring their film to life!
Here's what they have to say about why they're making this film:
"As students, we have all come to make Wellington our home over the last few years and so much of this time has been riddled with Covid and lockdowns. This city, famous for its quirks and creativity, has seen a dip in its usual spark and we want to bring that back. We want to kick a little joy into people's lives and bring the romance back to the coolest little capital in the world."
