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!
We are so excited to share that ASB Waterfront Theatre will host 16 Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival films over two weekends this July and August.
ASB Waterfront Theatre is now opening its theatre to the public for the first time since New Zealand’s COVID-19 lockdown, offering a premium viewing experience of this year’s film festival to audiences on the big screen!
Over two weekends 24-26 July and 31 July–2 August, you can watch World Premieres, New Zealand works, international films, documentaries, short films, world films and Hollywood stars at the magnificent ASB Waterfront Theatre.
The modern, luxurious and comfortable 675 seat theatre is fully equipped with state of-the art technology for a superior film festival experience. Enjoy a pre-movie drink or stay on afterwards to enjoy quality refreshments and robust discussion with friends, in the spacious surrounds of the theatre bar and AUT Atrium.
Take the hassle out of parking by pre-booking a space at the theatre car park - just a short walk through nautical Wynyard Quarter precinct to the theatre.
