Wellington Underground Film Festival

March 21-23
New Zealand Film Archive, 84 Taranaki St

Low-budget filmmaking is something mainstream audiences have very little contact with. This is a pity, given the breadth of talent in local filmmaking circles, and the fact that having limited resources usually fosters some of the greatest examples of innovation. Thankfully, the Wellington Underground Film Festival provides an opportunity for movie enthusiasts to get a sense of what our local filmmakers are capable of producing. 

Pure creativity is the primary aim of the festival, with an emphasis on pushing beyond creative boundaries and nurturing unique cinematic voices. “The lack of money, equipment, resources and sometimes even technical skills express an attitude and ethos you can’t find in the dominant narrative form”, says festival organiser Rosie Rowe. Students interested in unconventional filmmaking—particularly those of you studying Film Production—should definitely head along.
