Here's the news you've been waiting for ... we're delighted to announce the full programme for NZIFF 2022 with the festival making its highly anticipated return to Hamilton’s Lido Cinema from 18 August.
“We couldn’t be prouder of our 2022 programme – as well as having an outstanding collection of films from Aotearoa, our international selection is packed with award-winning, critically acclaimed films from all around the world. We look forward to presenting our programme to audiences around the country and we thank New Zealanders for their continued support of the festival,” says NZIFF General Manager Sally Woodfield.
Twenty-five films will feature in Hamilton screening from 18-31 August with American filmmaker Sara Dosa’s astonishing documentary Fire of Love opening the festival. Dosa’s portrait of two intrepid French volcanologists, skilfully constructed from amazing archival footage collected from ground-breaking volcanic expeditions, comes to the festival following the film making a major splash at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Swedish director Ruben Östlund’s Palme d'Or-winning Triangle of Sadness will bookend the festival programme.
The programme in Hamilton will also include Q&A sessions with filmmakers from Punch and When The Cows Come Home.
Printed programmes will be available from Lido Cinemas from Wednesday 13
