Come to Auckland to see the New Zealand film festival 28th October to the 14th November

The film festival normally opens in July/August, but in light of the severe impact Covid-19 has had on live events, the New Zealand Film Festival Trust and management have spent the past months carefully considering the national film festival’s shape, scale and timing for 2021.

Two critical factors are behind the decision to move to dates later in the year: the timing of the Covid-19 vaccination programme roll out and supply of high-profile international films, particularly with the recently announced postponement of the Cannes Film Festival from May to July.

As a vital source of many high-profile festival titles, the later dates for NZIFF 2021 allows the opportunity to select films from a delayed Cannes in addition to Venice and Toronto festivals which take place in late August/early September.

Delaying dates for 2021 also enables NZIFF to present a festival with enhanced confidence for you, the audience following the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine over the coming months.
