World Strand Films

We are delighted to have two generous sponsors supporting film strands in 2019. We welcome Green & Black’s Smooth Dark Chocolate on board as sponsors of our World Strand. The World Strand features our pick of the films we have encountered in a year of intense engagement with international cinema. We do what we can to cover many bases, not least the Cannes Film Festival, yielding some of our most exciting choices. Films in this strand span from the powerful ANZAC war story Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan to the lush Brazilian melodrama The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão.

Films from Aotearoa

Resene join us for the 6th year as sponsors of another stellar selection of films from Aotearoa.
The Aotearoa Strand provides big screen premieres for striking work made within our own shores, including Hamish Bennet’s tender and charming Bellbird and Tony Sutorious’ moving portrait Helen Kelly - Together. To view the full selection of Aotearoa Strand films click here.



NZIFF and Elemental Festival

NZIFF will also be taking part in Auckland’s new Elemental Festival. Travel the world from your seat with NZIFF 2019 and Elliott Stables. Simply present your NZIFF 2019 ticket at any restaurant in the Elliott Stables dining village for a 10% discount off your meal during the NZIFF season.

We look forward to welcoming you to NZIFF.
