The Moving Image Centre (MIC Toi Rerehiko) has curated a superb line-up of local digital film-makers' works:

A Glorious Morning - from the writings of Maurice Gee

Eden - two strangers cross paths in the beautiful setting of Bannockburn in Central Otago.

Salt and Vinegar - film maker Karyn Childs shows her talented hand as she takes us back to the simplicity and hardship of the formative years.

Va Tapuia - Samoan with English sub-titles. Tusi Tamasese delivers a beautifully packaged short.

Day Trip - Costa Botes' screenplay (based upon a story by Bill Payne) is a gem in the hands of director Zoe McIntosh.

Beached - This film teams an inexplicable plot with a highly improbable reality.

Tee Party - Director Michael Beran shows off his talent in an unassuming tale of two insomniacs who meet on the driving range in the middle of the night.
