Forty-two films from NZIFF 2021 are screening in Auckland over the next two weeks as part of In The Shade festival at Hollywood Avondale and Academy Cinemas.

Highlights of the programme include Japanese filmmaker Ryusuke Hamaguchi's much-acclaimed Drive My Car, which recently won the Golden Globe for best non-English language film and is tipped to be nominated for two Oscars; Sundance 2021 Grand Jury Prize winning film Flee – a thrilling tale of resilience; mesmerising metaphysical mystery Memoria directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and starring Tilda Swinton; Justin Kurzel's award-winning Nitram which takes a deep dive into the mind and soul of a mass-shooter; and The Eyes of Tammy Faye featuring Jessica Chastain as the larger-than-life televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker.

Fiona Clark: Unafraid and a 40th anniversary restoration of Merata Mita's Patu! also feature.
