Maoriland Film Festival 

Maoriland Film Festival is a pretty awesome event. Held in Otaki, a small town on the Kapiti Coast it features films from indigenous cultures from around the globe. I didn’t get see all I wanted of course. This year it was bigger and  the support has grown with its ambition.

There was also a film making competition which I was invited to participate in. Called  Native Slam the crews were made up of one local (Maori) and two visiting film makers. We had 3 days to make a film, from concept to screen. 

I was teamed up with Blackhorse Lowe (right), a Navajo director from New Mexico and Sunna Nousiemi, a Sami women from Finland. We had a lot of fun and the film we made was pretty damn good. Even if I say so myself haha. Looking forward to the next time we meet.
