The New Zealand Film Festival Trust presents
Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival

Fri 29 October - Sat 13 November 2021
Isaac Theatre Royal

Friday 29th October – Saturday 13th November 2021

Here’s the news you’ve been waiting for – Whānau Mārama: New Zealand International Film Festival is happening in 2021 and tickets are on sale now!

We have 79 screenings taking place over 16 days!

With the unfortunate news of Auckland having to cancel their screenings, it means Christchurch is now the opening city for the festival!

After what’s been another turbulent year, escape from your outside surroundings, be immersed in your imagination and treat yourself to one or many of the amazing films being screened right here at the Isaac Theatre Royal.
