After a brief festival intermission, the New Zealand International Film Festival 2012 has announced its festival screenings for the month of October. The screenings will be held from 17th October in Masterton and 25th October in New Plymouth.
The New Zealand International Film Festival is a national event extending the cinematic options of audiences and filmmakers throughout New Zealand. A programme of between 150-170 features is presented in Auckland and Wellington. The Festival opens in Auckland one weekend and gets underway in Wellington the next, overlapping for ten of their respective 17-day seasons. A smaller programme then travels to twelve further centres. The consolidation of several separately evolved Festivals into a single event known as The New Zealand International Film Festival occurred for the first time in 2009. The Film Festival is operated by the New Zealand Festival Trust, a non-profit, registered charitable trust.
