Here's the news you've been waiting for ... announcing the full programme for NZIFF 2022 for Timaru, playing at Movie Max Digital from 18-28 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-three feature films, and two short film collections, will screen at NZIFF 2022 in Timaru 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 in all centres.
Joining the collection of New Zealand films will be documentary Gloriavale, a probing and poignant investigation behind closed doors of the Gloriavale Christian Community.
