Wairoa Maori Film Festival and the Gaiety Theatre are celebrating together in 2015! Wairoa Maori Film Festival celebrates its 10th year and its 10th Maori film awards, supported once again by the NZ Film Commission. The Gaiety Theatre is reopening its cinema with a world class facility, supported by Wairoa District Council and Te Matarae O Te Wairoa Trust.

Our tenth birthday awards gala is an event like no other:

- a stunning Kapa Haka performance to welcome all guests to the gala
- VIP Special Guest Speaker Gaylene Preston, director, creative, industry veteran, visionary
- The Native Now! audio visual presentation creating an immersive environment of colour, sound and light, including Nga Whetuki artwork by Lisa Reihana (pictured) and a live performance from Rosanna Raymond
- Presentation of the fifth annual Women in Film & Television WMFF Mana Wahine Award
