Rawe! Get involved with Aotearoa Maori Film Festival!

We’ve concluded another lovely, special, and very successful Aotearoa Maori Film Festival. We’re so grateful to our amazing volunteers, some of whom turned up and just started mahi without being asked.

Did you enjoy our films? Did you enjoy the vibes? You made it special by coming to share our stories by the fire of the silver screen.

What’s that you say? Wish you could be involved? Hey but you can! Put your contacts down right here and get involved. Yes, you absolutely can volunteer with Aotearoa Maori Film Festival. There’s plenty of mahi throughout the year as well as on the night. Tick all the boxes you want, or tell us what else you love doing (especially if you think we need help in the area of your expertise…ae, tika, that we do).

Although, if you’d rather just show up and enjoy the vibes as manuhiri, that’s cool too. Without you we wouldn’t have an event! Put your name on the list, we’ll keep you posted with what’s going on.

NZ short film - Day Trip

A gang member wakes up one morning and decides he needs a day off. Willy (ex-Mongrel Mob boss Tuhoe Isaac) checks out of the gang pad and, on a whim goes for a cruise on the Interislander. At a Picton Pub he makes an unlikely connection with brothers of a different clan. The near-wordless exploration of culture clashes and a man’s journey outside of his comfort zone, was the debut dramatic short from director Zoe McIntosh. It was selected for New York and Tribeca film fests, and Isaac won best performance in a short film at the 2010 Qantas Film and TV Awards.

This week the New Zealand Maori Council will head to Ratana for the annual commemorations - we do so because we both have a common past in many of the social and economic affairs of our people, the aspiration of our people and more. We do so because the vision of this amazing and inspiring movement, the Ratana movement, is one for Maori to be proud of and share in. Our delegation will be led by Matthew Tukaki, our Executive Director and member of the National Executive, Chair of the National Maori Authority, Tane Cook, also a member of our National Executive and who also leads our National Committee on Te Reo and Culture, Diane Tuari, Chair of Hauraki District Maori Council and including Brent Reihana from the Maori Business Network
