The Wairoa Māori Film Festival is back on this Queen’s Birthday weekend (June 3-6) with a long list of great films featuring on their programme, including short films created by some of our members at DEGANZ.

Perfect Storm, directed and edited by Morag Brownlie, and Mary-Lyn Chambers’ Karanga will screen as part of the Made in Aotearoa Shorts programme.

Chantelle Burgoyne’s Sista, edited by board member Annie Collins, will feature in the Moana Nui a Kiwa Shorts programme, while, Washday by Kath Akuhata-Brown screens in the Mana Māori Shorts programme.

Two members’ films will screen as part of the Mana Wahine Shorts programme, Michelle Savill’s Ellen is Leaving (2012) and Mary-Lyn Chambers’ Karanga.

Congratulations to our members!
