Show Me Shorts Film Festival

This November the Show Me Shorts Film Festival celebrates its fifth birthday; claiming its place as a regular anticipated fixture on the national film festival circuit.

Festival Director Gina Dellabarca says, “Selecting our programme line up this year has been the toughest and most rewarding yet due to increased numbers of entries from filmmakers with an ever-growing level of skill and inventiveness.”

Show Me Shorts is a travelling festival of the best 40 short films from Australia and New Zealand. The films are divided into six themed sessions, which will be announced along with the selected films in early October.

Building on the success of the hugely popular 2009 workshops, the film-going public is invited to attend short filmmaking seminars during the festival in Auckland and Wellington. These will include screenings of award winning short films and question and answer sessions with their creators. With the support of the NZ Film Commission and in partnership with Script to Screen, festival organisers have this year also launched an inaugural Short Film Lab, inspired by those run by major A-list film festivals like Sundance.

Show Me Shorts Film Festival has further expanded its number of locations this year, enabling more Kiwis to have the opportunity to view the work of some of our most talented and resourceful filmmakers.
