This is my first year on the inside of NZIFF, and I'm hooked. As the Wellington Manager, I've been blown away by the incredibly hard work and tireless effort put in by so many, year after year. Staff and volunteers alike, it's amazing to see the dedication, passion and pure excitement from those involved.
My 'Must Sees' are more of a tiny snippet of my never-to-be-realised-wishlist, and reflect the far reaching scope of the festival programme; from gorgeous animation to fascinating and moving documentaries to anticipated indies to... The Greasy Strangler. I will be vicariously watching through you all, go forth and enjoy.
