NEW ZEALAND ON FILM: A FESTIVAL OF NEW ZEALAND FILMMAKING

  • ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
    ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

    The tale might start within lush bushland or a sweeping beachscape, but the stories in New Zealand on Film: A Festival of New Zealand filmmaking stretch well beyond the purely picturesque. For the first time, the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA)presents a showcase of New Zealand film and the nation at its scenic, fragile, resilient, tragic and uplifting best. Eight films and two short films, made between 1990 and 2012, selected from some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed directors, cinematographers and producers, will screen over a ten day period. Special guest filmmakers will discuss their work, affirming New Zealand’s position described by the American Film Institute as “one of the wonders of the world, an unparalleled success story.” A number of these films are being shown in China for the first time.

    This festival is part of celebrations to mark 2012 as the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and New Zealand. It is made possible with the generous support of The Ministry of Culture and Heritage in New Zealand, and the Cultural Diplomacy International Programme, The New Zealand Film Commission and The New Zealand Embassy, Beijing.
