Films by Collection

Staff Picks: Ina Kinski

As a temporary import from Dunedin, I am enjoying the much milder winter and the excitement of NZIFF in the Wellington office. I organise the traffic of films into the country and between NZIFF venues.

A Fantastic Woman

Una mujer fantástica

Sebastián Lelio

Rising Chilean director Sebastián Lelio (Gloria) celebrates the endurance of a woman under suspicion of murder in a film that heralds a stellar debut for transgender actress Daniela Vega.

The Farthest

Emer Reynolds

The incredible journey of the Voyager spaceship is retraced by the women and men closest to the action in this exhilarating big-screen documentary.

I Am Not a Witch

Rungano Nyoni
