Still Stories Photography Exhibition

Still Stories Photography Exhibition

Still Stories will be exhibited in four venues across the motu, including at the Aotearoa Film Focus Weekend. 

This year throughout the festival, we’ll be exhibiting a limited selection of still photography captured by members of the New Zealand Cinematographers Society (NZCS). Inspired by the unprecedented success of the American Cinematographer Society's Stories in a Single Frame showcase, the exhibition brings a special challenge for cinematographers — to distil a powerful narrative down to a single frame.

Renowned New Zealand film director and screenwriter, Roger Donaldson, himself a published photographer, will make his choice of the best 30 images to go into the public exhibition, which will be exhibited across four key regions: Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin.

Exhibited prints will be available for purchase, with proceeds evenly distributed between the cinematographer and supporting the various educational initiatives provided by NZCS nationwide.
