Wairoa Māori Film Festival Fever

The Wairoa Māori Film Festival returns, bringing a unique programme of Māori-made and themed films, alongside international indigenous films, especially those with a focus on the Pacific.

Wairoa Māori Film Festival Fever

Returning to Wairoa for Queen’s Birthday Weekend is the Wairoa Māori Film Festival. From film screenings to workshops, located in the heart of Wairoa, it’s a weekend not to miss.

Established in 2005, the festival celebrates Māori-made and themed films, alongside international indigenous films, especially those with a focus on the Pacific.

In true Māori spirit, guests are welcomed to the festival with a traditional powhiri, and are even given the option to stay and eat at the Marae. The weekend is packed with culture, entertainment, and even a touch of glamour; encouraging everyone to dress up in their finest to celebrate the dawn of Matariki. The Gaiety Theatre is also spreading its plumage, hosting a big part of the festival, with two days of screenings at the famous venue.

Join the stars and watch film magic unfold. There’s even an opportunity to take a dip in the local hot pools.

Where: Kahungunu Marae, Nuhaka and Gaiety Theatre, Wairoa

When: June 1 – 4
