Current Round

Round 3: Māori/Pasifika Filmmakers


This round is to highlight Hamilton-area Māori and Pasifika filmmakers. We work on the honesty policy, and if you don’t qualify for this round, there will be another that you do. All genres welcome.

All films must be under 10 minutes long. That’s why they’re called short.

Films must be appropriate for a public setting. We’re trying to show everyone in Hamilton what you’re making– and we will be screening the films prior to sending them to the selection panel.

Submissions must be in digital format. You’re going to have to submit it online, and we’ll be screening via computer, so try to have it in a nicer format if possible.

Selections will be blind, or as close as possible. So if you have a version without credits, we’ll ask you to send that so we’re not having to trim things for our selection panelists.

To submit your film, visit our Submissions page.
