Six more regions added to 2024 festival line-up

We’re thrilled to announce the addition of six more regions for NZIFF 2024 with the festival set to screen in Kirikiriroa Hamilton, Ahuriri Napier, Whakatū Nelson, Ngāmotu New Plymouth, Whakaoriori Masterton, and Tauranga-moana Tauranga this August and September.

Following the announcement of our 2024 seasons in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Ōtepoti Dunedin, and Ōtautahi Christchurch last month, the festival has been working closely with a collective of independent cinema owners, operators, and local film societies with a view to including them in this year’s festival run.

We are delighted to bring NZIFF 2024 to the LIDO Cinema in Hamilton, MTG Century Theatre in Napier, State Cinemas in Nelson, Len Lye Cinema in New Plymouth, Regent 3 in Masterton and Luxe Cinemas in Tauranga and we’re immensely grateful to the cinemas and the local film societies for coming together to positively support and help facilitate a wider delivery of the festival.

Ross Churchouse, Partner in The LIDO Cinema Hamilton says, “We are dedicated to working in partnership with the NZIFF to secure the NZIFF in Hamilton in 2024 and beyond. This positive support and dedication to provide the festival to other provincial locations is reflected in the collective efforts of all the other regional cinema locations. The NZIFF is an important date on the cinema going calendars for all our customers, communities, and regional Film Societies. We want to acknowledge their support and ongoing efforts to ensure that our communities will continue to be able to attend NZIFF outside of the metropolitan centres.”
