The New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) returns this year to bring you an exciting array of over 40 feature films and documentaries to enjoy. The latest and brightest of international cinema direct from premier festivals in North America, Australia and Europe as well as world premieres of many New Zealand films.

Like Crazy will open the festival in Havelock North on Thursday 1 September at Cinema Gold. Light food and drink will be served from 5:30 pm with the screening starting at 6:00 pm. Like Crazy is a disarming blend of comedy, social observation and tender psychological Italian drama about two institutionalised women who help themselves to a break from psychiatric care.

Eight Cannes Competition titles will play at NZIFF in Hawke’s Bay including Toni Erdmann, which was hailed as an original comic masterpiece when it premiered at Cannes and has already proven popular with audiences in Auckland and Wellington with extra screenings added. I, Daniel Blake which won a Palme d’Or for Best Film at Cannes this year (Ken Loach’s second) is confirmed to screen. Julieta is the latest from Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar, Personal Shopper Olivier Assayas’ new feature starring Kirsten Stewart as a medium haunted by her twin brother, and Paterson from director Jim Jarmusch and starring Adam Driver are also confirmed to screen.

In Aquarius, Brazilian actress Sonia Braga has the role of her life as a fiercely intelligent and independent woman fighting to save the apartment she loves from demolition. Aquarius won the Competition Award at the Sydney Film Festival 2016. The Salesman from Iranian master filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) won the Best Actor and Best Screenplay awards at Cannes. Elle, a provocative blackly comic thriller starring Isabelle Huppert will close the festival in Havelock North on Saturday 17 September.

Two New Zealand short film collections (New Zealand’s Best 2016 and Nga Whanaunga Maori Pasifika Shorts 2016) and two New Zealand documentaries will screen. The 5th Eye looks at New Zealand’s involvement in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance and the tale of the Waihopai Three 2008 sabotage case. Le Ride, which has had sell-out premiere screenings in Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington is confirmed to screen. In Le Ride, Amazing Race supremo Phil Keoghan jumps onto a 1928 bike to ride the Tour de France as experienced by Cantabrian Harry Watson, one of the first English-speaking cyclists to enter, let alone complete the race.

NZIFF in Havelock North screens from 1 to 18 September. NZIFF programmes are available from Cinema Gold Havelock North and cafes around town. Full programme information is also available online.

Tickets are available directly from the cinema venue.
