Experience the world of Indigenous cinema in Ōtaki this March as the Māoriland Film Festival (MFF) returns for its fourth annual festival.

Over five days, the MFF is delighted to once more bring Indigenous films from over 20 Indigenous nations spanning the Americas, Europe, Australia, the Middle East and the Pacific (and more to be confirmed!).

Join us for feature films, short film programmes, documentary, workshops, kōrero and more.

In 2017, the MFF also invites rangatahi (young people) from around Aotearoa to join us for the first annual Māoriland Rangatahi Film Festival - this festival, programmed by youth for youth runs from March 15 - 17 and will feature film screenings, filmmaking workshops for students, the annual E Tu Whānau Rangatahi Filmmaking Awards and more!

The 2017 programme will be announced on Waitangi Day, February 6, 2017, at Waitangi Park in Wellington. Come on down to grab a copy of the programme and to watch a curated selection of short indigenous films!
