Sheen of Gold, a documentary by New Zealand filmmaker Simon Ogston, profiles one of New Zealand's most influential Flying Nun bands, the Skeptics. A reissue of two Skeptics LPs is planned for August from the record label. This documentary will have its world premiere at NZIFF.

Director Adam Wingard's You're Next is the first film confirmed for the Incredibly Strange programme for this year.  

The Crash Reel, directed by Oscar nominated Lucy Walker (Waste Land) also makes it to this year's list of films. Professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce, on whom the film is based on, is the first international guest confirmed for the Auckland leg of NZIFF.
