Support Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival by making a donation.
Like many in the arts and events sector, NZIFF was seriously impacted by COVID, and we are working hard to restore it to the film festival you’ve known, loved and supported for many years.
The annual Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival is the cultural highlight of the winter, bringing the best and newest of international cinema to over 255,000 ticket buyers every year. Overseen by a dedicated board of trustees, operated by a small professional team, and supported by a dedicated force of film-loving volunteers, Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival is a non-profit, non-political, charitable trust.
Ticket sales alone do not cover the costs of sustaining the Festival and we need your financial support as we rebuild following the impacts of the pandemic years. We invite you to join us in building a more secure future for Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival.
The New Zealand Film Festival Trust is a charitable trust registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 2005 (registration number CC23151).
