The Festival is proud to celebrate our 7th year (postponed from October 2021) of featuring local film making. During our short history, we've established ourselves as one of New Zealand's most promising and unique young film festivals. The TS Film Festival focuses on film submissions from Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough and Kaikoura residents and gives these aspiring regional filmmakers an opportunity to premiere their films on the big screen.

All proceeds from the festival fund the “Top of the South Film Filmmakers,” a non-profit incorporated society open to anyone interested in making films. 100% of the Festival proceeds go to support and nurture local filmmakers, enabling them to make films in our unique Top of the South. Our long-term goal is to establish a thriving Top of the South film production industry and provide employment opportunities for filmmakers within the region.
