In Cinema

This year's unique online/in cinema 'hybrid' Festival has come about since New Zealand’s COVID-19 restrictions eased, and cinemas and venues have been able to reopen. We're thrilled to have 15 cinemas in eight cities around the country able to screen festival titles for their local audiences.

At the time of publication, screenings will be held at the
following participating venues.

For 2020 screenings in cinemas, ticket types and prices, including booking and/or credit card fees are at the discretion of the venues. 

Screening details will be added here as they are finalised. Stay tuned!
