The Aotearoa Maori Film Festival is on again in Sydney, on 22-23 August 2014. This year, we have expanded the program significantly from last year's one night of short films. The AMFF folks have built a snazzy website to bring you all of the info. You will be able to purchase tickets, read about the films and their makers, and stay tuned for program additions as they come to hand.
There is a Tamariki Workshop planned to show our young people how film makers write, plan, shoot and edit. The end result, a short film, will be screened at this year's event. The crew putting together this workshop includes short film maker Tema Kwan Fenton whose short film mockumentary "Biggest Bachelorette's Got Cooking Talent", taking a swipe at reality television, will screen at the festival. Fenton has worked in film and television on both sides of the Tasman.
As the Aotearoa Maori Film Festival is curated by Wairoa Film Festival's very own Leo Koziol, the success of this year's Wairoa means that next year there we will again have a huge range of quality films for Sydneysiders to look forward to. Leo Koziol, the director of Wairoa Film Festival event, will continue as the driving force behind bringing the films to Australian viewers, so our audiences here are in great hands.
