Tāmaki Makaurau Opening Night NZIFF 2023

It was a full house at the Civic on Wednesday evening, with filmmakers, industry members, and the finest film fans in Tāmaki Makaurau coming out to celebrate the Opening Night of Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival for 2023.

With opening remarks from NZFFT Board member and filmmaker Tearapa Kahi, NZFFT Board Chair Catherine Fitzgerald, our Pouwhakahaere Matua | General Manager Sally Woodfield, and Upoko o te Rauhī Hōtaka | Head of Programming Michael McDonnell, we were thrilled to screen Justine Triet’s Palme d’Or-winning Anatomy of a Fall in such a lively, excited atmosphere. A sign of many more mid-winter festivities to come!
