About the Māoriland Film Festival

Māoriland Film Festival is an international indigenous film festival that celebrates indigenous voices and storytelling in film. Each March, Māoriland brings films and their creators to Ōtaki for five days of screenings, workshops and special events.

The vision is to do for Otaki, what Robert Redford did for Park City, Utah. Every year Park City’s population of about 6,500 swells to 40,000 as filmmakers, the film industry and fans view movies from every corner of the planet at the SUNDANCE FESTIVAL.

Careers have been launched at SUNDANCE (including that of Aotearoa’s Taika Waititi). SUNDANCE also runs filmmaking training programmes called Labs. These Labs have helped bring many films to the screen, including WHALERIDER and BOY. SUNDANCE is the preeminent independent film festival in the world.
