But NZIFF director Marten Rabarts admitted there was a “broken heart” when the decision was made not to present the festival in theaters as originally planned because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’ve worked quickly [with] “filmmakers, distributors and sales agents to ensure we can confidently adapt the way we will present their films to our special audiences across the country,” Rabarts said.
“NZIFF At Home – Online will be a true film festival experience featuring premiere screenings of world and New Zealand films every night and including a virtual red carpet, and question and answer filmmakers. We have the potential to invite more international guests to present their films to viewers our festival than before using the virtual method. “
The festival, which is run by the non-profit New Zealand Film Festival Trust, is in the process of increasing video about demand technology.
“We are working with our OnDemand provider, Shift72 on technology to bring ‘bell and whistle’ digital playback space, coupled with the possibility of live streaming events on our own website.”
The full program and choice of festival prices will be announced on June 22. Further information is available at official festival website.
